Our story slam season continues at Bella Luna with “Beasts” and special guest, Joseph Porcelli, founder and Chief Executive Neighbors of NeighborsForNeighbors.org .
Whether it crawls, walks, slithers, flys or resides deep within you, we want to hear your beastly stories. There is a story there, whether you know it, yet, or not. Bring it. #
THE COHOST: Joseph Porcelli is the founder and Chief Executive Neighbors of NeighborsForNeighbors.org that connects neighbors who don't know each other do stuff with and for each other in the neighborhood where they live. He earns his living leading a consulting practice that provides community engagement strategy and implementation to Federal, State, and Local public agencies and their partners.
ABOUT STORY SLAMS: People with a five minute story on the theme “Beasts” will drop their names in the “hat”. 10 lucky tellers will be drawn at random to tell and be judged. There will be a team of 5 volunteer judges and massmouth awards prizes to the top two stories. Listeners will be engaged in story improv games between each 5 minute feature.
