Last week my acapella and storytelling group, The Storytellers, got to partner up with Union Hall Denver to do a really special performance. Union Hall is a new space that opened up last Spring to foster the cutting edge of arts in the Union Station/LoDo area of Denver.

They had just opened up a new exhibit, Poems for Our Country, which asked artists from around the country to create tapestries and other work that reflected on how to build a united nation in this upcoming pivotal year.

They tapped us to activate the exhibit with sons and stories. Alejandro, Wisdom and I adapted a three-part narrative that we crafted for Pop-Up Zine Denver that reflected on our journeys of learning and arrival as members of immigrant families.

We performed some beautiful music, offered stories, monologues and even a little poetry.

“A lot of people remarked that it was the best Storytellers event they’d seen. It all just clicked together so powerfully.”
