Your Real Stories presents
the 6th Annual Story Days in Tampa Bay
This popular six-day storytelling festival collaborates with St. Petersburg and Tampa area artists and arts organizations, theatres, libraries, universities, restaurants, and museums to present real life stories just the way you like them– told, performed on stage, danced, sung, seen in exhibits and documentaries and experienced in seminars for writers, producers and filmmakers. Each evening ends with receptions and after parties at local restaurants because there will be a lot to talk about.
Story Days in Tampa Bay is the signature production of Your Real Stories, creator of the series Decades of Day Work and St. Pete Stories. Your Real Stories also created and produced Out of the Shadows: the LGBTQ Homeless Youth project, which was awarded Creative Loafing’s 2017 “Best of the Bay” for “The Best Mix of Theatre, Storytelling and Activism.”
Each year, Your Real Stories, a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization, produces some of the events for Story Days and then collaborates with partners around Tampa Bay to complete the rest of the six-day schedule. Former partners have included the Tampa Bay Times, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Dali Museum, the St. Petersburg Library System, University of South Florida (USF) Tampa and USF St. Petersburg, The Studio@620, and The Florida Holocaust Museum, among others.
