Join us for a Live Storytelling Event: “Voices of the Community”

July 23, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Collective will host “Voices of the Collective” live storytelling on Sunday, July 25 with Writ Large founder Alya Howe. Enjoy an evening showcasing storytellers who will share their potent, thought-provoking and authentic tales as part of a collaboration to deepen our understanding of our local communities.

Writ Large is part of a long tradition of live storytelling events in the Roaring Fork Valley. The series has touched the hearts of all involved: tellers and listeners.

The event is free with limited seating. RSVP to [email protected]. Free parking is available in the Snowmass Base Village Parking Structure.

Meet Your Storytellers:

  • Alya Howe is the founder of Writ Large and the Performing Arts Umbrella. Howe explains that Writ Large exists because we humans are a storytelling species. She believes a community with no narrative to tell doesn’t survive as a community. A heartfelt narrative makes all the difference for an individual, a family or a community.
  • Chloe Conger grew up in the Aspen area and found her way home after many travels in California, Mexico and South East Asia. On sabbatical from teaching Yoga, Qigong and Meditation, she is enjoying life, especially through skiing, snorkeling, paddle boarding on the river, hiking, doing improv and dancing.
  • Dustin Eli is a father, artist, musician, technologist and mystic. His main inspiration for all his artistic expressions is the great beauty of the wild world and the desire to help others to live more awake, empowered and connected lives. He loves to work with ancient wisdom, sacred geometry, digital media, technology, sound, energy and music to inspire a more beautiful world. You can find his art, music, and mystic teachings at dustineli.com.
  • Originally from Wisconsin, Neshay Evers fondly recalls her childhood with memories of falling asleep to her father playing guitar and her mum shouting at the stairs in the morning to wake her and her brother up. She’s lived in Colorado for nearly six years, cultivating a deep passion for growing organic vegetables and flowers and sharing her labors with super tasty meals. In her spare time, she’s an avid skier, runner and knots stunning intricate jewelry and accessories.
  • Giovanna O. Kennedy was born and raised in Lima, Peru. In 2000, while an undergrad pursuing her Industrial Engineering degree, she came to Aspen for her winter break. She instantly fell in love with the people and town and moved to the area. After a banking and luxury hospitality career, she transitioned to helping others materialize their goals in real estate and the community. She’s a board on the Colorado Association of Realtors Diversity & Inclusion Committee and a Valley View Hospital Foundation ambassador. She has participated in numerous committees and organizations to embrace the community.
  • Laurie Stone is an engineer turned writer. She is currently managing editor for RMI (formerly Rocky Mountain Institute). When she’s not working on solving the global climate crisis, she can be found running and biking on trails throughout the valley.
