Images of Resilience Storytelling Event

The Guidance Center's Images of Resilience Photography Exhibit: May 1 - June 2 features a sure-to-be compelling Storytelling Event to highlight its focus on resilence and navigating through life's challenges. We are pleased to welcome Shannon Cason (The Moth, Snap Judgment, WBEZ) to MC this new event.

The special evening begins with a reception from 6 - 7 p.m. (where guests will be able to view the photography in the art gallery while enjoying hors d'oeuvres from The Rhapsody), followed by the main storytelling event from 7 - 8 p.m., and an afterglow with refreshments until 9 p.m. No registration is required, and this event is free and open to the public.

The three Storytellers who will participate are Jim Pinion, who will detail his experience with cancer; Michelle Fecteau, foster parent with a large and wonderful family; and Emily Schaller, founder of Rock CF Foundation. Each of these Storytellers brings a unique perspective that will connect with the audience on many levels.

Guests are able to visit the Images of Resilience photography exhibit to enjoy the inspiring photos of resilience and the stories behind them.

The Storytelling Event is generously sponsored by Patrick and Karen Wilson Smithbauer.
