Open to the public, Full Circle Storytelling events revolve around a theme and the idea: everyone has a story. By encouraging community members to tell their own true tales, each storyteller is placed at the center of his or her own life journey. We use narrative as a way to promote understanding between diverse peoples, building bridges – not walls – within our community. Co-hosted by Akron-Summit County Public Library, Wandering Aesthetics and the Akronist, this intimate evening of storytelling conjured the spirit of community.
We are creating an archive of stories from Greater Akron residents. This archive may be used by students, journalists, researchers, artists, etc. for purposes beyond Full Circle Storytelling events.
Participants at our live events are not required to have their stories recorded for our archive. Sometimes the magic is only for those in the room.
