OUR IDEA: In the spirit of Brother Blue, storytellers will take to the "streets." From Chanukah through Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve and beyond, until the last day of Kwanza or Los Tres Reyes they will tell stories where people need it the most. Through this work we will form a living tribute to Brother Blue.
The time frame is only a suggestion. It may not be possible for everyone to arrange a venue at this late date. However, sharing our talents during the holiday season will have the biggest impact for many who feel lonely and hopeless at this time of year. Know that whenever you decide to “walk the walk” you will be following in the footsteps of our beloved Brother Blue.
HOW: At whatever location you decide to serve, storytellers will:
o Share that they are part of "A Brother Blue Christmas" and present a bit about Brother Blue, who he was and why we are offering stories in honor of his life and work.
o Storytellers will be responsible for arranging and completing the programs in their communities. They may go alone or in groups and bring musicians or other artists with them as well.
o They will NOT take any money for their performance.
Storytellers will remember and honor Brother Blue by giving the gift of story to people who need it most, when they need it most. The final piece will be publicizing the venues after completion so his example will live on.
