STORIES! COMMUNITY! DRINKS! MUSIC! TEARS! LAUGHTER!
We will be hosting our next live storytelling event and happy hour on Friday, April 6 at the Crowley Theater in Marfa. This event will be held in conjunction with their Spring Membership Drive, coming right at the heels of Marfa Public Radio’s 12th year in operation.
Doors will open at 6 PM for the happy hour party featuring a live DJ. Beer will be provided courtesy of Big Bend Brewing Co., a sponsor of the Marfa Public Radio Live Storytelling Program. Stories will begin at 7:30 PM.
The theme of this event is All or Nothing: True Stories of Taking Big Risks, where participants will recount true stories of going for broke and reaching for the stars.
Storytelling is one of the most democratic arts and therefore the perfect tool to celebrate a wider range of experience in the Big Bend and the Permian Basin. The station aims to be a beacon for storytelling and to foster and amplify the voices of West Texas. The other goal of these events is to give neighbors and strangers the opportunity to laugh and cry together.
The Spring Membership Drive begins Monday, April 2. In lieu of the regular party at the radio station, the staff hopes you’ll join them for the happy hour and evening of stories from friends and neighbors.
