Event Details

JOIN US on April 8th from 1:00 to 3:30 for the next Story Circle

Stories are powerful, they have the ability to connect us to a moment, each other, and our collective experiences. They share wisdom across generations and cultures. They remind us who we are.

MNIPL is hosting a new series of storytelling circles in Muslim spaces, open to the interfaith community to celebrate unique family and environmental ancestries. These circles will be hosted by Muslim youth from the MNIPL Youth Leadership Team and will highlight stories the youth will collect in interviews with their family members about their family history. Through these stories, youth will showcase their own traditions and customs and how their family historically relates to the land. Youth will learn to celebrate their own voices in such a way that they are able to see how the unique voices of others are also valuable. This series will culminate during Ramadan at MNIPL’s Interfaith Iftar at the Northern Spark festival on June 10th.

We all have our stories! Come help us write the next few lines on YOUR page in the human chapter, by learning about your neighbors and their environmental ancestry. Community members are invited to join these story circles, regardless of faith tradition, to share their own stories

You’re invited to join us for a Story Circle. People from all faith backgrounds are welcome to attend. This series of events is generously sponsored by the Bush Foundation.

We’ll kick off our very first Environmental Ancestry Story Circle by getting to know each other and where each person is from. Then, we’ll talk about the importance of storytelling, break into our story circles, and share with each other. Light brunch type food will be provided.
