Storytelling for the Revolution

  • Hera Hub 4010 Sorrento Valley Blvd, Ste 400, San Diego, California 92121 (map)

There comes a time in every citizens lifetime, where they must decided what role they will play in their history. 

Our time is now. 

Join us as we explore the current social and political narratives and what role we each want to play in this unfolding drama. 

In this community event, we will guide you through 3-key concepts of powerful storytelling:

-Your aspirations
-Your challenges
-Your resolution

If we look at the current state of affairs, from a creative storytelling perspective, we may find a treasure of fresh ideas and solutions we hadn't yet imagined.

This event is a must if you are: 

-Fed up with the current political narrative
-A leader searching for new ways to empower your community 
-Considering running for office
-A community organizer
-A passionate citizen ready to take action but don't know where to start

We hope you join us! 

We all have the ability to craft a message and story that inspires our fellow citizens! In this event, you will walk away with a new perspective, fresh ideas on how to craft your message, and tools to create your own story that compels your community to take action. 

Ahead of midterm elections, we are offering this event for free. 
Food, community and solutions feed a weary political soul! 

This is a FREE Community Event and Potluck. Please bring a dish to share. And invite a friend! 

Space limited to 30. Please RSVP.
