The URBAN STORIES FESTIVAL is a multi-day storytelling event celebrating West Palm Beach, Florida – what was, what is, what could be.

We’ll share experiences, celebrate diversity, and find common ground.

In harmony with these goals, the festival will also support literacy. 

Through stories in the form of: 

  • story circles
  • short stories
  • poetry / rap / spoken word
  • oral histories
  • speakers / workshops / panels
  • photography / other visual arts
  • music / dance / other performing arts
  • and also food

We hope to learn from each other and build a stronger community.
