Pivot: New Beginnings // Live Storytelling Event

  • Washington Cracker Building 304 West Pacific Avenue Spokane, WA, 99201 United States (map)

Pivot is a brand-new live storytelling series in Spokane with support from Spark Central, Spokane Arts, Gonzaga University, and more. Please join us for the first Pivot event, featuring stories that center on the theme of "New Beginnings."

We all have a New Beginnings story. A story of dawn, step one, day one, birth or re-birth. Initiations and inaugurations. Tabula rasa. A new leaf, a puppy, a job, a journey, parole. New car smell. A makeover. Quantum leaps, burning and building bridges, cleaning house, pulling up roots or a fresh coat of paint. A blank sheet of paper. Join eight Spokane storytellers as they share, live and without notes, their own stories of new beginnings.
