We weren't sure anything could be better than the first season of the Des Moines Storytellers Project. And then the second season happened. Thank you to everyone who helped us shape that second season where we shared true, first-person stories from neighbors & notables with more than 2,300 attendees at seven events. We set our goals & exceeded them — again.
We take pride in securing unique venues & bringing special surprises to the guest experience. So, for 2018 we are announcing 12 shows in six nights. That's right, we will have doubleheaders to allow more of you to become a part of the community we are building. Each night will include shows at 5:30 & 8:30 p.m.
If you've been to a Storytellers Project night, you know why you love it. But if not, the project is dedicated to the idea that oral storytelling & journalism have the same goals: serving & reflecting a community while fostering empathy among those people.
These nights blend the authenticity and hype-free discipline of storytelling as an art form, with the truthfulness, community-building & empowerment that's at the heart of great journalism. If you missed any of our first two seasons, catch up at DesMoinesRegister.com/Storytellers .
We want you to be a part of our third season, whether you are on stage or in the audience. In an effort to make 2018 even more special, we are continuing our VIP experience that will feature premier seating and special gifts.
