Stories are such an important part of the building of our work lives
& StoryCorps has recently been recognized as an important collector of stories.
Their recordings are stories of people in all walks of life, often talking about important moments in their lives.
And we will have an opportunity to listen to the founder of this nationwide project, David Isay, on Wed. Aug. 5, 7 p.m. at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Gt. Barrington.
For BCC students, this is a special BCC FORUM event. Free admission for BCC students who pre-register by noon on Thursday, July 30th. Call 413-236-5201 to sign up.
The core of StoryCorps is listening. It’s about honoring another human being by simply listening to their story.
Dave Isay is the recipient of numerous honors, including six Peabody Awards and the 2015 $1 million TED prize.
Join us Aug. 5, as he describes the evolution of this national storytelling initiative.
Then, two days later, BCC will host three days of StoryCorps Community Recordings at its South County Center. If you would like to participate in the project or receive additional information, contact Mahaiwe Performing Arts, at www.mahaiwe.org/Community.
