Future Events

We want our listeners to be able to explore the excitement and connection that storytelling can provide at one of our live storytelling events. We’re aiming to bring a live storytelling event to a theater near you. Usually, our live storytelling events consist of 5-8 storytellers telling their true and compelling stories live on stage in front of an audience. These stories are told without notes and from the heart, making the connection to the storyteller raw and emotional. Storytellers work with the organizers to craft their story in an engaging manner.

Are you a group, organization, or institution that wants to help co-sponsor one of these live storytelling events in a theater near you with Palestinians Podcast? We’ve partnered with festivals, museums, and student groups in the past and look to partner with other organizations.  You can find out more about the process and propose your event by emailing stories@palestinianspodcast.com. Typically, these events need 3-8 months of lead-time to be developed, planned, and executed. We hope that we get the opportunity to bring live storytelling to your city!
