Converging Stories: A new live storytelling event series

A new community storytelling event series launched in Raleigh earlier this year: Converging Stories!

Live, first-person storytelling is a rich tradition to build empathy, understanding and community between neighbors.

With the new community storytelling series, Raleigh Convergence and partner Transfer Company invite anyone who is a part of the Raleigh community to submit a story within an event’s theme to be coached and told on stage.

Each storytelling event will host 10-minute stories on different interpretations around a theme.

Converging Stories: The First Love, from Raleigh Convergence x Transfer Company, was held Feb. 10 to a sold-out crowd.

When the coronavirus hit our community, we took Converging Stories virtual with Converging Stories: What If? in May and Converging Stories: Coming Home in August.

Our final event of the 2020 season is Oct. 26, themed Fear.

Stay tuned for more dates and themes for the upcoming 2021 season of Converging Stories!
