Share Your Stories: People’s State of the Union
January 27, 2019
In January of most years, the President delivers a State of the Union Address. It’s a broadcast from one to many. As a complement, we invite you to participate in a story circle at the NHCC, an opportunity to listen to each other about the state of our union. Who are we as a people? What touches our hearts and minds?What does democracy mean to us?
This event is a partnership between the NHCC and the US Department of Arts and Culture (USDAC), a grassroots action network inciting creativity to shape a culture of empathy, equity, and belonging. Each year in January, the USDAC hosts story circles in over 300 communities across the US. With permission, stories are uploaded to the People’s State of the Union (PSOTU) portal and become part of a “Poetic Address to the Nation” that is presented, nationwide, in March.
This event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome; please bring family members, friends and colleagues. Please RSVP to help us plan your participation: https://nhccnm.wufoo.com/forms/s1hu81pb0rsihj8/.
