    BE SURE TO CHECK WEBSITE FOR UPDATES DUE TO COVID-19!

    The Storytellers Project is a series of live storytelling nights where Des Moines Register journalists curate and host nights of true, first-person stories from neighbors and notables. The Register’s award-winning journalists help community members to draw out authentic, personal experiences and hone them into engaging dialogue. The nights send a message that everyone has a story worth telling, and that everyone CAN tell it.

    Since its founding in 2016, more than 150 community members have taken the stage to share their stories with more than 6,000 audience members.
