Mill City Museum is hosting a live, in-person storytelling event in celebration of Women’s History Month 2024.

We are looking for female-identifying performers to tell their true stories, inspired by history and women of the past.

Mill City Museum is a museum focused on four main themes of Land, People, City, Food: feel free to use any one of these as an optional prompt. Perhaps one of these subjects inspires a story? (i.e. How has the land shaped you? What food is important to you or your family? Recipes? etc.)

Stories should be no longer than seven minutes.

Preference for Minnesota-based stories.

The stories can be personal, familial, or historic (if historic, we’d love to know how this history impacts you!)

A variety of tone and content is welcome and encouraged.

We offer an honorarium of $75 for the performance and an additional $25 for dress rehearsal (Either on Sunday March 17th, 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., or on Wednesday March 20th, 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.). Attendance at one of these rehearsals is expected.

An additional benefit of this event is that StoryArts of MN will be offering optional story coaching sessions to all selected storytellers. Coaching can be useful to performers of all experience levels and we encourage you to request a coaching session if selected.

Deadline for submission is by February 16, 2024.

The program will be an in-person event on Saturday, March 24, 2024 in Mill City Museum’s Mill Commons at 7 p.m. Tickets will be available to the public.

Submission sign up, along with additional details can be found here.
