Burien Culture Hub
Date: 10/22/2021, 7-8:30 PM

7 Stories is a night of storytelling to celebrate our communities’ rich cultural heritage. Stories tell us more about our friends and neighbors.

The theme this evening is “Uncharted Territory.” For more information or to sign up, go to burienculturehub.org/7stories – or contact 7stories@burienculturehub.org.  It will take place at the Highline Heritage Museum, 819 SW 152nd Street, Burien.

This first storytelling night of the season will be a hybrid: live with storytellers and a small number of guests, streamed live, AND shared on the 7Stories YouTube channel after the event.

These life stories may be mesmerizing, raw, powerful, or humorous. This is not theater, but true life stories told by friends, acquaintances, and strangers.

Storytellers are encouraged to use the language they feel most comfortable with.* Stories will be memorized and told from the heart. The hosts for the evening will introduce each story with a short bio of the teller. There will be an intermission after the 4th speaker, with free tea, coffee, and cookies.
