Story Seeds event features local, national and international storytellers

Posted

Those who love telling stories, as well as those who love to listen to them, will enjoy three events planned during the Rocky Mountain Storytelling Conference April 12-13 at the American Mountaineering Center at 710 10th St. in Golden.

Rocky Mountain Storytelling, a nonprofit, volunteer-led organization based in Golden, presents a conference, a public concert and a story slam during its Story Seeds Conference and Concert.

“We are very excited to bring the annual conference and concert back to Golden this year,” Rocky Mountain Storytelling President and Board Member Kate Lutz said in a news release. “It has become more important than ever to preserve the art of storytelling as the age of digital communication continues to boom. We feel this event is the perfect way to hear some fascinating storytellers and inspire a new generation to learn how to both share and enjoy this art.”

The public concert, “Friday Evening Stories in Concert,” begins at 7 p.m. April 12 and features Irish storyteller Liz Weir; author, performer and educator Angel Vigil; and bilingual storyteller and podcaster Carolina Quiroga-Stultz. The concert is targeted to an adult audience; children older than 10 are welcome.

The Story Seeds conference is April 13 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Weir will give the keynote presentation, and workshops are led by Glenda Bonin, Mark Goldman, Yvonne Healy, Maureen Korte, Julie Moss and Elaine Muray. Laura Deal, Pam Faro, Yvonne Healy, Elaine Muray, Susan Scott-Stevens, John Stansfield and 2018 RMS Story Slam Winner Dave Starr also will perform.

Conference ticket price includes lunch, the Friday concert and a ticket to the story slam, which will follow the conference at 7 p.m. April 13. The story slam includes personal and traditional tales on the theme of “illusion.”

Attendees are invited to bring their best five-minute story and put their name in a hat. Ten storytellers will be chosen to perform, and a panel of judges will determine the winner and award a prize. Storytellers are not allowed to bring notes on the stage.

“The concert, conference and slam will be filled with stories that entertain, delight and make you think,” Lutz said in the release. “Adults love stories. If you love listening to stories or are just curious about a storytelling concert, come and enjoy the Friday evening concert and Saturday Slam. Want more? Enjoy the whole package, including concert, conference and slam. Everyone loves a good story.”
