Converging Stories: A new live storytelling event series

A new community storytelling event 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: What If? virtual.

Two more events are scheduled for this year!
