Untold Stories returns October 27th, and we need you to share a story! Our theme this year is “Blue tarps, Xtratufs, and duct tape: stories of hunkering down, wading through, and patching up.” For most, the experience of living in Alaska creates these stories organically, and we are excited to provide a platform to share!
Held quarterly, Untold Stories is a program hosted by the Palmer Museum of History and Art to capture and share local stories. Seven storytellers each share a seven-minute tale on a theme chosen by our storytelling committee. Stories to make you laugh, cry, and reflect on good times gone by.
Interested in sharing a story? Submit yours at www.palmermuseum.org/untold-stories. The deadline for submissions is the end of September. Storytellers selected are required to attend two rehearsals on the evenings of October 16th and 23rd. Each event typically features a mix of veteran and novice storytellers, and we love the diversity! So, whether you’re a longstanding campfire bard or a newcomer with a tale to tell, send us a brief outline for a chance to take the stage in October!
Tickets for this event will be available starting October 1st at Fireside Books, B Bella’s Salon, and the Palmer Museum.
