VoiceStory events are about putting away cell phones and taking a moment to be with yourself and other community members, then having time to practice how to have a conversation. Registration required

Looking for a safe space to practice talking to others? Are you new to the community and want to meet people? 

Tired of having video or Zoom calls to connect with other people?

Then come join us, this is where you want to be!

If you have thoughts and feelings of being disconnected, uncertain of what to say, what to talk about, not wanting to go alone, “this is just another networking event…” or a multitude of other reasons… please understand that we have kept all of this in mind in the creation of these social events for you.

We start each event by introducing a few key concepts on how to become a more effective communicator and practice the Art of Conversation

Next we invite you to participate in our safe, friendly, empowered space, where we will facilitate rounds of 1-on-1 conversation with like-minded people, by providing a topic/question for each round of conversation.

We take care of pairing everyone up with someone new every round, so you have ample opportunity to meet new people from your community and connect with them by practicing your communication skills.

There are only 24 spots available at each social event, so do not wait and register your spot now!

When and where is this event held?
