Golden Days: Stories for a Hopeful Future
I wanted to notify HREG about this unique storytelling and community event.
It will present stories of a hopeful future and will give time to
organziations such as HREG that are improving the quality of life in the
Houston area. Likewise, if someone from the group would like to man a
table and bring some promotional material, that would be great as well.
I've included a press release about the event as well, if you'd like to
forward it on to anyone else who might be interested. If you have any
questions, feel free to contact me.
Storytellers are creating stories of a hopeful future. In Golden Days:
Stories for a Hopeful Future, local storytellers will present stories that
inspire, excite, and give hope for the future. This event features the
storytelling talents of Brent Babino, Alice Evergreen, Brian Herod, and
Sheila Phillips. Held at the Taft Street Coffee House (2115 Taft St), this
Aug. 7th event also brings together Houston organizations that are taking
steps to restore and protect our natural world. Organizations such as
Blackwood Land Institute teaches Houston-area middle school students the
principles of permaculture. Participating organizations include:
Body Choir Houston

Central City Co-op

and many others.
This event gives audience an opportunity to meet with representatives of
these organizations to discover more about how these groups are changing
Houston for the better. Afterward, participants will hear stories of
restoration and recovery. Families are welcome for the first hour and
