Stories connect us all.
This is true of a small child spellbound by a bedtime tale, or a business worker who adds a winning personal touch to their presentation.
So it should come as no surprise that storytellers themselves enjoy connecting together — such as at the annual Rocky Mountain Storytelling Conference, April 20-21 in Golden.
The public is invited to attend the conference, to hear some of the best oral storytellers in the world, and maybe even work on their own skills.
The conference is headlined by Storytelling World Award Winner Lyn Ford, a fourth-generation storyteller whose roots as an African-American from Appalachia. She will be performing 7-9 p.m. on April 20, presenting some of her “Home Fried Tales” about her work as a storyteller, author, educator, mentor and yoga laughter coach. Three other storytellers will also perform, in an event that is suitable for children 10 and older.
April 21 activities includes workshops, classes and more storytelling performances. That evening from 7-9 p.m. there will be a story slam — competitive storytelling — around the theme “World Changing.”
Tickets are available for just as much story as you’d like — the Friday Evening Concert, the Saturday evening Story Slam, or the whole Conference that includes Concert and Slam. Tickets and full information are at rmstory.org.
