$5

Family Folktales is an opportunity to hear all sorts of stories about all sorts of families. Storytellers will tell true stories that feature their family, in whatever form it takes.

Our families are the people who help shape us, raise us, or rescue us and are not limited to our blood relatives. Maybe you’re part of a “chosen” family, a drag family, or a sorority. Maybe you have step-siblings, half-siblings, or adopted siblings. Maybe you have no dad, or two dads, or were raised by your grandpa. This event will showcase how many types of family exist, and how each one is as valid as the next.

Danielle K.L. Grégoire is a parent, poet, storyteller, stand up comedian, and big-hearted-sensitive-co-dependent-artist-type and community enabler. Danielle helped start and run one of Canada’s longest running slam poetry nights, and was on the national board of directors of SpoCan in its infancy. After moving to Seattle, Danielle founded the Comedy Womb (now the Comedy Nest) in 2013, and ran it until 2015, when she became the producer for the Seattle Moth storySLAM, which she ran for nearly two years before handing that off, and taking on more personal projects, including; soap making, craft fairs, and her very own storytelling show And Other Stories. She is soon moving back to Canada, and is taking this opportunity to travel across the U.S. presenting storytelling in all forms.
