This is a little way off but we might need time to prepare...

May 16 is the International Day for Sharing Life Stories.

This is a venture, or adventure, is supported by the Center for Digital Storytelling and the Museum of the Person. The Museum of the Person is a network of museums in Canada, Brazil, Portugal and the United States of America.

“Our two organizations see the movement to share life stories as a critical part of the democratic process,” states Joe Lambert, founder and director of the Center for Digital Storytelling.

CDS and the Museum of the Person are calling on people to gather in community halls, classrooms, public parks, theaters, auditoriums on May 16 to share their stories. They are also calling on organizations to mark the day on their websites and host virtual story circles via online chats and exchanges, and publication of new stories.

People are invited to add their endorsement by registering at the site or writing to internacional@museudapessoa.net.

International Day for Sharing Stories. Museum of the Person. Already it sounds like music. What will you do?

Have a great weekend. Tell a story. Listen to a story. See you Monday.
