Shoebox Stories Live with the Boulder Chamber
Where: The Dairy Arts Center, 2590 Walnut Street, Boulder, CO 80302
Tickets now available at The Dairy Arts Center website
Shoebox Stories is a story-holding project where you stand in another person’s shoes by reading aloud their story, saying their words, and holding, for a moment, the weight that they carry.
Motus Theater will celebrate and recognize Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s fight for equality and civil rights this year by asking local leaders in Boulder County to stand in other people’s shoes. Shoebox Stories pairs Motus’ undocumented monologists with prominent Boulderites to amplify their stories and host a community conversation around immigration, the DACA + DREAMer programs and how, by standing in another’s shoes, we expand our understanding of what it means to be human.
Readers selected for the evening by the Boulder Chamber will be:
- John Tayer, CEO
- Ted Rockwell, Director of Marketing and Communications, Continuing Education at CU Boulder (Chamber Board Chair)
- Boni Sandoval, Broomfield Market President, First Western Trust Bank (Chamber Board Vice Chair)
- Regina Reyes-Zaragoza, I Have a Dream Foundation Volunteer Manager
