The Story Circle is currently full. Please join us on Friday, March 23 for an evening of poetry inspired by the Story Circle.

Share your stories at the Parrish’s second annual Story Circle as part of the artists collective U.S. Department of Arts and Culture’s People’s State of the Union. Residents of the East End are invited to share their stories and reflect on the current “state of the union” while mingling with their neighbors and enjoying refreshments. The Story Circle aims to create a space for sharing and listening and to bring our communities together. The circles will be facilitated by moderators. 

Inspired by the stories, a group of poets will compose poetry to be performed at the Poetry Night at the Parrish on March 23. 

Anyone age 15 and older is invited to participate. No preparation is necessary.

Watch last year's Story Circle and Poetry Night.

The People’s State of the Union is an annual civic ritual, rooted in the belief that democracy is a conversation, not a monologue.

The Story Circles, initiated by the artists’ collective, “U.S. Department of Arts and Culture” are held nationwide. The stories will be uploaded to an online story portal where they can be shared.

Space is limited; advance registration required.
