We the People Warwick (WTPW), a community group, has announced the inaugural session of Warwick Story Share, a community-wide event showcasing short personal stories told by Warwick residents to live audiences from other residents of Warwick.

“This idea stems from the long history of storytelling and its power to engage, inspire, heal and, above all, bring us together,” said WTPW member Geoff Howard. “Since the beginning of mankind, stories have been essential elements of empathy, human connection and community. That’s why WTPW members work hard to bring stories of struggle, joy and joy to life. , resilience and basic humanity that exist in members of our own community.

As for the criteria, stories should be short, five-minute, non-political “nuggets” about lived personal experience, and they should be told, not read.

This first-time event will take place on Wednesday, June 1 at Wickham Woodlands Manor, from 7:30-9:00 p.m., followed by an opportunity to mingle over refreshments. WTPW members intend this free community-wide event to be the start of future events to be held in a variety of venues across Warwick.

For more information and to register as a storyteller, visit wethepeoplewarwick.org/warwick-story-share. The website also includes an events page, with information about their Spring Dialogue Series coming in May.

This first event will take place on Wednesday, June 1 at the Wickham Woodlands Mansion, from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
