Event Description:

Hop on a bus and hear about how transit connects communities both physically and figuratively while also learning to share your own transit story. 

This interactive and on-the-move storytelling event features transit riders on the busses they use. But this event isn’t only about hearing the stories of others, it’s about learning to tell your story! Participants will meet at one of three different locations depending on the day (see below). Each workshop focuses on a different rapid transit corridor that will be in operation by 2022. Attendees will then hop on a bus to hear from transit users and others before settling in for a storytelling workshop at the Julia M. Carson Transit Center. At the Transit Center, participants will craft their own community-focused tales. Bus fare included with registration!

Workshop Meet-Up Locations:
Each workshop meets at a different starting point. Parking will be available and all meet-up locations are transit-accessible. Participants will take the bus back to the starting point at the end.
