JustStories Online Story Festival

JustStories Online Story Festival
Thursday August 2 @ 8PM EST

The JustStories Festival features stories that build bridges between diverse racial and ethnic groups and is a co-production of Angels Studio, a communications ministry of The Society of the Divine Word, and Halloran Diversity Productions.

This year the festival is going to the web in hopes of reaching an even bigger audience with stories that can heal our racial and ethnic divides. During the August JustStories online festival, every hour (14 hours a day!) on the JustStories Facebook page a premiere video of a professional storyteller’s story will be shown; 60 stories in all!

You can watch the videos, then comment on them and contribute your own story. Even better – you can simultaneously listen to other people’s comments, too – from Australia to India to Mississippi and New York. In addition, some of the storytellers will be online Thursday August 2,  8PM EST  to answer  questions and listen to comments and shared anecdotes. 

Yes! You can be part of the red carpet and get a front row seat without leaving the comfort of your home or workplace. Won’t you please join the worldwide conversation, a respectful and fun conversation on witnessing and honoring our diverse experiences and exploring the possibilities of living in harmony?

Go to:  www.facebook.com/juststories and encourage your friends around the world to join us, too. If you are already on Facebook, “Like” the JustStories page and then you’ll be able to “Share” the videos and resources with your friends.
