The Best Neighbourhood Stories Ever!

Wow, sometimes when you’re searching through your old emails, you find some fun stuff—like this poster! The Best Neighbourhood Stories Ever was one of our first events! TBNSE was essentially a storytelling pop-up shop that we set-up at a local Toronto Public Library as part of Culture Days. We had local storytellers share some lovely tales live and we set-up recording equipment to allow the community to share and keep a copy of their own best stories—because who doesn’t have a great story to tell about this awesome city? Though I recall that it was a bit of a stressful day for the team as we worked to coordinate event, it was still a lot of fun. I fondly recall one little girl who came into our booth to record. She started off understandably shy, but we were so pleased to see her hit her stride as she and her mom began to co-tell a story. It was pretty great!
