A Night of Storytelling
The AMP | 7:31pm - 9:30pm
A Night of Storytelling is a biannual Our Jackson Home event that seeks to create a warm environment for you to dig deeper into the people and places of our city by hearing personal stories from your Jackson neighbors—but lucky you, we're doing THREE events this year! Plus, we're going beyond the walls of theCO and taking you to the AMP.
This event is family-friendly and free, where you'll enjoy being told six Jacksonian tales, hearing some live and local music, and listening to some Jackson poetry—after munching on some grub from local food trucks, of course. We will also have all kinds of merch available, including our brand-new August-November journal—Vol. 3, Issue 2: Day & Night. La Petite Boutique and #theCOmobile will also be set up for shopping and exploring.
Food available at 5:00, storytelling begins at 7:31 (of course).
