Join us for an open mic with Pivot Spokane! Audience members will have a chance to tell their stories on stage by adding their names to a drawing. There will be 7 storytellers drawn.
Every great story has a pivot. It may be the moment the stakes are raised when you can't wait to hear what comes next. It could be the instant a story elevates from good to great, or the nexus at which a story reveals what it's truly about. It could be the way a great story can make you laugh so hard you can't breathe, and in the next moment, break your heart.
Humans love stories for how they make us think and feel: they surprise and delight us, remind us of our common humanity, hold up a mirror to our foibles, and expand our ways of thinking. We all have different lived experiences, but stories connect us. They draw us in and whisper: I recognize you. We're not so different.
Pivot is the brainchild of a group of community members, joined by a common desire to build a live storytelling series in Spokane. By day, they are teachers, advocates, artists, lawyers, administrators, doctors, organizers, and much more.
