What we're about

Stories are a fundamental part of the fabric that makes us human.

Through stories, we share beliefs and cultural values. We learn through stories. We record and remember our histories through stories. We connect with others by sharing our own stories and listening to the stories of others.

This Meetup group is all about "story" and celebrating the value of some of the older stories out there - myths, legends, world tales, fairy tales (which weren't originally written for children!), folk tales and traditional tales.

We'll organise monthly Boulder Story Nights, smaller theme-based story events, and create opportunities for lovers of story of all ages to listen to new stories, share old stories and re-learn some of what we've lost in our wonderful, but some isolating, technological age.

Welcome, Story Lover!
