It’s been many years, and counting, that the NewGround community has successfully crafted and contributed to a lovely and experientially rich Spotlight event. This year was no exception.
Each year, NewGround is proud to host a Spotlight Storytelling event, during which community members, friends, and visitors come to support those close to them and enjoy an evening of narrative and performance.
This year’s Spotlight was especially magical. For our Muslim and Jewish storytellers, “Taking Risks,” was both the theme they spoke to and what they actively wrestled with in order to harvest their stories and expose their own vulnerability to all of us.
Showing up together, when it is so much easier to isolate, can also feel risky. Thank your for being with us. We will always appreciate you.
If you were unable to join, please take a look at our 2018 Spotlight Facebook Album. If you were with us, please enjoy the photos, and tag yourself, your friends, and your family!
We would like to thank everyone who sponsored, volunteered, attended, and contributed to the event! Your generous support not only empowers NewGround and our mission, but also helped make this one of the most successful NewGround Spotlight evenings to date.
Last but most certainly not least, we would like to thank each of our storytellers and all of those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make last night such a powerful evening. We are truly grateful for your dedication!
