Live Storytelling with Alya Howe

July 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The Collective will host Live Storytelling with Alya Howe, founder of Writ Large. The evenings showcase storytellers who each have seven minutes to tell their tales. This series has touched the hearts of all who have been involved and add a tremendous value to our community for listeners and tellers alike. Limited seating. RSVP to [email protected]. Coached and curated by Alya Howe. For details, contact Howe at at [email protected], visit alyahowe.org or call 970-309-2582.
Alya Howe is 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. Having a heartfelt narrative to tell makes all the difference for an individual, a family, a community.

Hamilton lives with his wife and two children in Carbondale, after spending most of the last 15 years in India and Nepal. He has a career as a filmmaker with a focus on documentary.
