Humans have gathered around campfires to tell stories for thousands of years. In the glow of the fire, they celebrated life events, spread the word about new ideas and innovation, and highlighted issues that needed attention – helping the community thrive.
Though we aren’t able to build a campfire in most venues these days, we can still gather to share stories.
TINY TALKS mission is to provide skill building programs and a platform for passionate speakers to learn to share their wisdom, stories and perspectives.
By keeping presentations brief, the audience can sample a wide range of stories in one entertaining evening; allowing for a cross-pollination of ideas and new ways of seeing the world.
After the presentations, everyone is invited to join designated ‘conversation tables’. The presenters help facilitate conversation so neighbors or co-workers can meet and share their thoughts and stories.
The audience leaves inspired by new ideas and experiences. One or two new friends are made. Everyone has an opportunity to both listen and be heard. Come join the fire. Bring your curiosity. Add your voice. This is what helps communities continue to thrive!
