Walk N Roll: A Neighborhood Storytelling Project 

What: Circulate San Diego and So Say We All are hosting a night of short stories tonight in Barrio Logan.  Hear our performers tell first person narrative stories about their neighborhoods. Hear about the heartbreaks, the bad decisions, about home, and everything that makes our neighborhoods great (and not so great).  Before the event, there will be a 4-mile community bike ride that starts and ends at Ryan Bros Coffee.

Major funding for this program was provided by a grant from Community Action Partnership, a program of the County of San Diego.

When:                 Wednesday, August 9, 2017

                            5:30-7:00 pm – Community Bike Ride

                            7:00-9:00 pm – Storytelling Event                                                                 

Where: Ryan Bros Coffee, 1894 Main St, San Diego, CA  92113

Who: Walk N Roll: A Neighborhood Storytelling Project is free and open to the public, the café will be open for people to purchase coffee, beer, and light food.

Why: San Diego is changing. The housing crisis is transforming communities and raising difficult questions about our neighborhood identity. Walk N Roll: A Neighborhood Storytelling Project will bring together people from disparate backgrounds to facilitate a conversation about how our neighborhoods shape us and how we shape our neighborhoods.

Circulate San Diego is a regional non-profit organization dedicated to advancing mobility and making the region a better place to move, work, learn, and play. Our work focuses on creating great mobility choices, more walkable and bikeable neighborhoods, and land uses that promote sustainable growth.

So Say We All particularly strives to amplify the voices of those who are more often talked about than heard directly from.
