Daring Stories: Facing Your Fears

  • Collective Impact Center 3295 Meade Avenue San Diego, CA 92116 (map)

Daring Stories is a new live storytelling event from The New Narrative. Through a mix of open mic and featured storytellers, each night will explore a new theme on the concept of daring; such as overcoming obstacles, dealing with challenges, finding personal courage, and working to make a more equitable world.

This month’s theme is Facing Your Fears. We’re looking for stories about the times we’ve had to drum up the courage to face the things that scare us the most. What was it you were afraid of? Why did you feel the need to face it? How did the experience change you as a person?

Whether you have a story to share or just want to listen, we’d love to have you join us. Open mic stories are 5 minutes. Featured storytellers get 8 minutes. If you’re interested in being a featured storyteller you can get more info here.

Each event will include a storytelling workshop an hour before the actual show too. If you’re feeling nervous or unsure, the workshop will provide an opportunity to learn more about storytelling and practice in a lower stakes setting.

The world needs powerful storytellers now more than ever. Through sharing the stories of what matters to us most we learn about ourselves, grow as leaders, build community, and craft the narrative for the world we want to live in.

Come join us to see first hand how powerful storytelling can be!


Doors open at 5:45 p.m.
Workshop begins at 6 p.m.
Show begins at 7 p.m.
