Come for the Storymobile
Saint Paul Almanac's Storymobile, driven by artists on a tandem bicycle, is a hand-built art space on wheels that's solar-powered and decked out with iPads, microphones, and amps, as well as traditional writing implements and paper. The Storymobile visits street festivals, block parties, and community centers as a roving story collector, poetry reading, and instant open mic, offering new technology and fresh artistic antics married with the old idea of amanuensis: helping people document their stories.
Saint Paul Almanac Executive Director Kimberly Nightingale and Storymobile manager Melvin Giles will talk about the Storymobile project at the "Community Engagement Projects in Minnesota" break-out session, but you can check out the Storymobile yourself anytime during the afternoon! (12:30 - 3:30)
Stay for the Ice Cream
The annual meeting program officially ends at 3:15, but stick around for ice cream with your colleagues from 3:15 - 4:00 PM.
