Telling better stories, a skill we can all improve on!! We are grateful to partner with Hebah from Kerning Cultures to create a fun night of storytelling, Epic Anecdotes.
July's most popularly voted Foundation experience idea was a storyteller workshop!! Stories are how we make sense of ourselves, how we share that identity with others, and generally, just how understand the world around us.
To offer this learning experience, we are partnering with one of the best storytellers in the business, Hebah Fisher!
Hebah started Kerning Cultures three and half years ago to share meaningful and impactful stories from the Middle East. Her podcasts are inspirational, moving, and beautifully make you reflect and reprioritize the important things in life.
"As children of the Middle East, we have grown up surrounded by regional and international media that pigeonholes the Middle East and North Africa into politics. At Kerning Cultures, we tell the kinds of stories in which we can actually see ourselves, the kinds of stories we want to discuss with our friends over warm cups of coffee on cozy sofas. Because we love stories - really good stories, and there are so many from our region just waiting to be told."
We will start with light food, drinks, mingling and introductions, and then give the floor to Hebah for an interactive workshop to help us all tell our stories in more powerful ways. Look forward to seeing you all there.
We’d also like to thank our media partner, The Evergrey, for basically just always being awesome and being an amazing resource in making Seattle a stronger community.
