7 Stories


7 storytellers, 7 real stories

Who hasn’t been captivated by a powerful or funny story? 7 STORIES is a night of such storytelling – to build community, empathy, and celebrate our diversity.

Each 7 STORIES night will have a theme and storytellers sign up and are selected in advance. Real stories are mesmerizing and raw. This is not a theatrical performance, but true life stories from your friends, acquaintances, or someone you have never met. Don’t think fables, ghost or children’s stories…these stories are told from the heart. The program will be introduced by our host for the evening, with a short bio of each storyteller.

WE NEED YOU Please consider sharing your true story…In the spirit of community and friendship. We will coach/help you as much as you would like. To sign up fill out the form below or email us at 7stories@burienculturehub.org.
