It is a celebration of each other, our stories and how we move through the world together. All of the stories at Tell Us Something are true. Stories last for 10 minutes and are told from memory. Everyone is welcome to tell a story. There is a theme for each event.
Tell Us Something is:
Jason Forges - Member At Large
Jason Forges is a community member that focuses on finding avenues to be open, authentic, and artistic. Jason’s goal is to create an entity titled Appreciate C.O.L.O.R that will leverage the arts to promote meaningful perspectives while provoking thought and encouraging actionable steps with himself and others.
Jason shared a story at Tell Us Something in March of 2019. His story is called “You Can’t be Curious and Angry at the Same Time”
Taylor Burby - Member at Large
A graduate of the University of Oregon’s folklore and public culture master’s program and previous intern with the Oregon Folklife Network, Taylor works with the Montana Arts Council and the Bear River Heritage Area on a contract basis to collect, interpret, and promote traditional arts, crafts, and folkways in Montana and Utah, respectively. Through her work, she has the opportunity not only to witness how others navigate life through their craft but through their personal stories.
Taylor spent her first experience at a Tell Us Something event crying about a liver, a hawk, and an aging apple. After the event ended and the folding chairs were packed away, Taylor left and–for weeks–no one could get her to stop talking about it; she was hooked. Today, she is happy to bring her experience working as a public folklorist to Tell Us Something as their programming committee chair.
When not hanging posters for events, she is probably playing Wordle, foraging for mushrooms, or, on a truly special day, taking a trip.
