Maryland Humanities Council and The Stoop Storytelling Series present
“Moving Stories: Getting Around Baltimore”
Do you have a tale about riding the bus in Baltimore City? Do you feel safe walking or biking around town? Are you a taxi driver, a senior citizen or a carpooling mom? Do you take the light rail or subway? Do you get stuck in traffic every morning on the JFX? Do you kayak to school or take three busses?
We are looking for storytellers to tell a five-minute true personal tale about their experiences of navigating Baltimore–the good, the bad, and the ugly–for “Moving Stories: Getting Around Baltimore” on February 10 from 6 -8:30 pm at The Walters Museum. Send three sentences about your idea to Beth Barbush at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your story is chosen, you must be available to take part in a free Stoop Stories workshop with Laura Wexler and Jessica Henkin at the Maryland Humanities Council (108 West Centre Street, Baltimore) on Sunday, February 6 from 1 – 4:30 pm. You may have the opportunity to share your story in performance, print, or audio recording. Five performances of the stories will be presented at the Walters Art Museum on February 10, followed by small group discussions and debates on transportation issues.
