Urban Stories Festival – a new event in West Palm Beach

On January 27-28 in Downtown West Palm Beach, the Urban Stories Festival seeks to build community through storytelling. The Howl at the Moon Stories event explores the theme West Palm Beach–what was, what is, what could be through the lenses of civic engagement, social equity, economic prosperity, environmental justice and safe neighborhoods. Cultural and community partners will join the general public to provide stories. Activities and entertainment include live dance and musical performances, children’s storytimes and hands-on arts and crafts, a bike tour to explore the city’s past, and other activities. The festival is supported by FAU’s Center for Urban and Environmental Solutions, the Arts & Entertainment District of West Palm Beach, and Blue Planet Writers’ Room.
