A week from tonight, the community is invited to a “StoryBridge” event. After months of coaching, members of the NSBORO community will tell their personal stories.

The event is part of an initiative by Northborough-Southborough Public Schools’ Coalition for Equity:

Story Bridge Showcase flyerThe Story Bridge Project, led by Southborough parents Jennifer De Leon and Adam Stumacher, brings together people from many walks of life into one space to share unique stories from their lives.

Last year, the coalition hosted talks by De Leon (an author, educator, and speaker) about sharing personal stories. They followed up by encouraging community members to submit their own stories.

Over the past five months, De Leon and Stumacher worked with ten participants in workshops to help them “identify compelling stories from their lives”, then “write and shape them”, and practice telling their stories. 

On Thursday, October 20th, the volunteers will hit the stage to share their stories with the audience. An announcement by the district describes:

each participant performs their stories on stage at a community showcase–stories that never fail to crack you up, break your heart, and make you think.

The free event is open to the public, but registration is encouraged. Click here to RSVP.
