Our theme for Spotlight 2018 is “Taking A Risk.” Ticket information and further particulars about the event can be found here.

Since 2011, NewGround has hosted a community-building event of true storytelling, based off of the format of NPR’s “The Moth,” as our local celebration of the annual Weekend of Twinning event convened by the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding.
