When was the last time someone looked you in the eye, asked a question, and truly listened? Did they dig deep and discover how your present day connects to experiences of the past? Did they invite your story to be told?
Stories connect us. They take a random collection of experiences, locations, and characters and pick up on a universal set emotions that bind us together. They also instruct us. By listening to a story, we ride passenger on extraordinary adventures, difficult situations, and lucky breaks. We get to question ourselves and see how we would have responded in the same scenario.
The Forum Stories brings you into the world of normal people who are striving with all their might to let their creativity breath. Whether its through opening a non-profit coffee shop to employ homeless teens, hitchhiking across the US, or rolling burritos to support musicians; these stories are snapshots of what makes Denver wonderful. The Forum Stories is our way of listening in that deep intentional way to our beloved city. You can pull up a chair and listen for yourself by going to our Journal, watching a Video, listening to a Podcast, or attending an upcoming event.
