Storytelling about Dreams

Join us at The Exchange at 7 p.m. on the last day of January for an evening of music and stories from our friends and neighbors about DREAMS -- your dreams, others' dreams; good dreams, bad dreams; visions, aspirations.

You too can share, through spoken word or song -- no prior experience necessary, but we would like to talk to you ahead of time about what you plan to present (and please, keep it no more than PG-13).  Please call or e-mail to sign up: 570-317-2596 or [email protected].
 
Limited audience seating in the Exchange Gallery available: If you can, please call or e-mail to make a reservation: 570-317-2596,

Donations accepted at the door -- $10 suggested, anything accepted.
 
We will record the event for later upload to YouTube.

The Exchange hosts live storytelling about dreams on January 31st

The American poet and critic Muriel Rukeyser said “The Universe is made of stories, not of atoms.” At The Exchange we believe that by sharing our stores with each other we help to build a sense of community – and help to define the identity of our region.

In association with our current Gallery show, with the theme “Dreams”, we have scheduled an evening of music and stories from our friends and neighbors about dreams – daydreams, aspirational dreams, nightmares, and other visions – and we invite YOU to take part, as a storyteller, a singer, a reader, and/or a listener. Join us at the Exchange Gallery, 24 East Main Street in Bloomsburg, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 31st. You may share through spoken word or song, with no prior experience necessary, but we would like to talk to you ahead of time about what you plan to present (and please, keep it no more than PG-13). As we have done at all of our four prior storytelling events, we will capture all of the stories on video for sharing later.

With limited time slots available for storytellers and musicians, and with limited audience seating available in the Exchange Gallery, please call or e-mail to sign up and/or to make a free reservation: 570-317-2596, [email protected] We will accept donations at the door – $10 per person suggested, anything accepted.

We began our storytelling series in September of 2021, marking the tenth anniversary of the worst flood in Bloomsburg’s history, with “Catastrophes, Cataclysms & Calamities: Dealing with Disasters” – stories of natural disasters and also personal disasters between friends. We held three storytelling evenings in 2022: In February we marked Valentine’s Day with “Love”; in July we went “WILD: Unbelievable Animal Stories”; and in September we searched for “UFOs: Unfinished, Unexplained, and Extraordinary”. You can find the videos on our YouTube channel at YouTube Link - Click Here 

The art exhibition “Dreams” will run at the Exchange Gallery from Monday, January 9th, through Friday, February 3rd. We invited all artists of all ages and levels of experience to make work inspired by dreams, and 36 people from seven central-Pennsylvania counties responded; the 76 pieces in the show include paintings, drawings, photographs and other digital media, and a variety of mixed media. Visit ExchangeArts.org/calls-for-entry for details about all of our upcoming shows.

Visit the Exchange Gallery Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (hours may vary from week to week; visit ExchangeArts.org/gallery-hours or give us a call before you drop in).
