The Flynn is committed to using the arts to build connections and strengthen communities. We are launching *snap* to celebrate the power of first-person narratives across disciplines because we believe everyone has stories to tell and that sharing these stories teaches empathy by allowing us to recognize commonalities and learn about each other’s unique experiences.
From January 19-21, 2024, the Flynn celebrates the power of storytelling and solo performance with a weekend-long festival that includes workshops and solo performances by professional and emerging artists.
Through a series of performances and workshops, we will create a dialogue between performers and the audience and provide opportunities for the community to join and support the conversation. Performances will include meaningful time for questions and thoughts from the audience. Our expectation is that performers listen to audience feedback and have it shape their work, and that our audiences develops a deeper understanding of this important art form.
