Front Porch Sessions
Fri, Feb 17 at 8pm
This is not your typical storytelling show. We’ll feature three amazing storytellers talking about AUTHENTICITY—then in-between stories the audience gets a chance to share and discuss their truth.
Our featured storytellers are Canada Taylor, Monique Johnson, and Rakeem Washington.
Hosted by storytellers Marshall Goss (Back Fence PDX) and Chris Williams (Broke Gravy).
About The Turnout
Storytelling. Comedy. Community.
As a recollection of shared experiences passed across generations or an illuminating narrative that sparks empathy, our stories carry the strength to make less strangers within our world.
The Turnout will celebrate our Portland Black community while making connections across the diaspora—sharing, learning, and growing together through the power of story. February 16-19, 2023, in the heart of the Historic Alberta neighborhood, Broke Gravy and Alberta House will bring four nights of storytelling, improv comedy, and community—buoyed by intimate gatherings and workshops. Let’s all come together.
