HI Austin is partnering with Beyond Our Backyard Storytelling, an internationally focused storytelling event that connects a crowd from Austin and across the globe. The event is hosted in HI Austin's location on Lady Bird Lake. We will be celebrating HI Austin's annual recognition of International Day for Peace. HI USA's mission is to promote peace through cross cultural understanding and what better way to celebrate lessons from abroad than to share epic travel tales! Come celebrate with us as we start a new Austin tradition!
The theme for the first B.O.B Story event will be "That did not go as planned". The theme is more to inspire our storytellers rather than be a hard fast rule. Every storyteller gets 5-7 minutes.
Bring a something to sit on, snacks, and BYOB. We will be in a city park so absolutely no glass allowed, but cans are welcome! Come at 6:30 pm to find the perfect seat and watch the sunset. We will start stories promptly at 7:30 pm.
