Storywallahs: An Evening Of Storytelling

Storywallahs

Last fall, KUOW 94.9FM produced Two Indias, Near and Far, a six-part series about the Indian experience here in the Pacific Northwest and in Hyderabad, India.

The positive response from listeners inspired KUOW to team up with Tasveer and Pratidhwani and continue the community conversation. So we created Storywallahs: An Evening Of Storytelling.

For tips on what makes a great story, go to http://kuow.org/storywallahs

Inspired by The Moth — a weekly live storytelling show that airs on KUOW — the theme for our first Storywallahs is “misunderstood.” Anyone can sign up for a chance to tell a five-minute story about being misunderstood (or misunderstanding)! Or just come listen to great stories told by folks from the India and South Asian community.
