FORMAT FOR THE EVENING

This is like The Moth (storytelling) meets The Vagina Monologues (women-focused and thematic). And just like those performances, only the speakers speak. Everyone else shows up to listen. As such, the format of this event is as follows:

  • No questions will be posed to the speakers
  • Attendees are meant to engage with the content silently
  • Attendees are encouraged to consider the new perspectives they have acquired from listening to the speakers and what might they do differently in their lives or community as a result of what they have heard
  • Attendees are invited to reflect and captures these reflections in writing between speakers, but silently and privately

THE PURPOSE

The Write Place, Right Time's deepest heartfelt mission is to empower womxn and other marginalized people's to share their stories. We believe through stories there is connection. Connection fosters community. And when there is a united community change can occur.

The You Speak, We Listen: Together We Stand event series is a quarterly event for the empowerment of those voices and their stories to exist in real time and for their experienced to be honored and heard. This is a time and place for womxn to connect on the deepest and most vulnerable human level through personal story and sharing.
