Bronx Museum of the Arts Hosts "Bronx Stories" June 10th

Here is a free event at the Bronx Museum of the Arts that should be uplifting to everyone involved. I am especially happy that James McSherry will be the MC for the Bronx story telling event. Besides being a gentleman, James McSherry is the writer, producer and actor of 2011 Cannes Film Festival entry "Poetry Man". The event should be inundated with muses and robust creative energy. For more information on James McSherry please do see the web link included below. It should be a great event for everyone interested in improving their story telling and writing skills. Kudos to everyone involved.



Friday, June 10 · 6:30pm - 8:30pm

The Bronx Museum of the Arts
1040 Grand Concourse at 165th St.
Bronx, NY

Think you know the Bronx? Think again.

Join us for an evening of storytelling inspired by art and the Bronx.
Bring your own stories to share too!

...MC James McSherry
Storytellers: Hetty Fox, Judith Heineman, Stuart Nager, Peggy Robles-Alvarado, Ashleigh Ham, Bianca Ortiz, and Monique Simmons

We have a very eclectic mix of storytellers this time around who are educators, poets, high school students, and even high school teachers! Their personal narratives will be inspired by the selected works of art from the exhibition, "The Kid in Me", a NYC teen exhibition curated by the Bronx Museum's Teen Council. After the professionals, audience members will be invited to participate in our open mic session and tell their personal tales.

You'll have a chance to create a work of art with our friends from Paper Tiger TV!

The goals of Bronx Stories are four-fold: to challenge stereotypes about the Bronx and promote positive images of the borough; provide a platform for voices from the community and space for the community to come together; encourage deeper engagement with art; and to create a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere in the museum.
