November 30, 2019 All Day
Tellabration!™, an annual event created by The National Storytelling Network and hosted in over 300 venues around the world, will be celebrated in downtown Minneapolis on Saturday, November 30, 10 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. at Open Book, 1011 Washington Ave S.
The day-long event, which is free to all, will feature a dozen panel discussions, classes, and workshops that explore a wide-range of topics about storytelling, narrative techniques in other disciplines (e.g. film, podcasts, poetry), and how to craft, promote, and refine stories for audiences and print.
There will also be a literature/merchandise table, games and stories to which guests can contribute, and, most importantly, a hosted open tell, all visitors are invited to tell a story, or a story about a story. The event will conclude with an evening concert featuring the donated talents of the best spoken word artists Minnesota has to offer.
Three of the region’s story organizations—Cheap Theatre, Northlands Storytelling Network, and Story Arts of Minnesota—combined efforts to produce this engaging showcase of spoken word expertise and talent as part of Tellabration!’s international reach.
