Metro Detroit is wonderfully diverse and full of stories. The Third Annual Storytellers Festivalat the Detroit Historical Museum on Sunday, April 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. will bring together groups from Metro Detroit’s various communities, each with a unique story that has helped shaped the city into what it is today. Whether you are curious about cultural history or interested in the art of storytelling, we invite you to join us! The event is FREE and open to the public.
Participating organizations include: Arab American National Museum, the Turkish American Cultural Association of Michigan, Maria Elena & Co., the Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers, Detroit Story League, the Library of Michigan, and the Detroit Historical Society’s Black Historic Sites Committee. Throughout the day, guests will hear stories about Detroit’s dynamic innovators past and present, as well as the everyday people who overcame obstacles to make a difference in our region’s history. Each group is different and may choose to express their stories through storytelling or traditional song and dance, highlighting their particular customs and history along the way.
The day-long event will also feature crafts, activities and a storytelling workshop to help visitors develop their own stories. This program is ideal for families looking for a fun way to explore the diversity and rich cultural traditions that make up Detroit.
