Story Slam

Headwaters Music & Arts hosts what may well be Bemidji’s first Story Slam. The theme? Speak. Inspired by the #metoo movement with the larger goal to build bridges, find voice and be heard, we look forward to an evening of real human expression and connection, along with lots of laughter and just plain fun. Hosted by professional storyteller Laura Packer, up to ten participants will tell a true story no more than five minutes long.  Judges will be pulled from the audience. Prizes of $75 1st place, $50 2nd place and $25 3rd place will be awarded. The Headwaters Story Slam competition is open to women and men ages 18 and older.

Headwaters Music & Arts welcomes award-winning storyteller Laura Packer to Bemidji for a series of performances and workshops with the goal to build bridges, find voice and be heard.

A storyteller, educator and consultant with 20 plus years of experience, Laura Packer of Wayzata tells original and traditional stories for all audiences with a focus on adults, families and older children. Her stories cover the range of human experience from the most grounded to the fantastical and are a collaborative creation with the audience, drawing listeners into the world of the story.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota, through a grant from the Region 2 Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund
