Heart Stories

Update 09/16/19: Save the Date! Heart Stories 2020: Radical Inclusivity, is slated for February 15. Please make sure to subscribe to our e-news to keep up to date!

Update 2/18/19: Thank you to all who made this event a huge success! We packed the venue. I think it’s safe to say everyone who participated left feeling like they’d experienced something powerful. More to come!

More than a dozen artists are coming together for one evening to share personal stories from the heart through spoken word, music and song, dance, mime and visual art. Some adult language and subject matter. Suggested $10 donation at door goes directly to paying the performing artists, but this event is free and open to the public thanks to a grant from the Port Townsend Arts Commission. BluJay Kombucha will be there selling its delicious brew. The first edition of Storyborne magazine, featuring even more regional artists, will be on sale.
