We've all seen the amazing videos Our City, Our Story puts out highlighting different aspects of our city. Now those stories are hitting the stage!

Our City, Our Story-Facebook

Thanks to a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois, Our City, Our Story will be bringing their stories and tellers to the stage. There will be four live events throughout the year. The first being this Saturday with a theme of "That One Time".

Creator Pablo Korona told WIFR that having a live show will be a way to unite the city and have a first hand interaction with the storytellers. He went on to say:

"This is an opportunity to take it offline and actually make it real, where people are actually able to come in, meet people that are in these documentaries, ask questions, see how it is, have a really good time, get to know each other, because when we tell each other a story, it's hard not to like that person once who understand who that person actually is."

This Saturday, February 17th, starting at 7:30pm at the Nordlof Center is the first Our City, Our Story Live event. The event is FREE because of the grant from Community Foundation of Northern Illinois, along with RAAC Rockford Area Arts Council.
