Storytelling Lunch with Kirsty Bennett

Tuesday, February 14, 2023 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

The Bush Room (10-105)

Storytelling Lunch.

After a long hiatus, please join us for Storytelling Lunch! This is a chance to gather and connect with your colleagues. Everyone is invited to share a true story from their own lives on our theme, or just come to listen.

This Valentine's Day, bring your stories about Love, whatever form it takes. Love found, love lost, the love of a good book or a bond that will never be broken. Tell us about the times you walked 500 miles, stood in line for a midnight movie opening, or just knew this time it wouldn’t work out.

Kirsty Bennett is the founder of MITell, a storytelling program for MIT and the Manager of the MIT Women’s League. Previously, she spent seven years as a Producer and Director for the Peabody Award-winning The Moth, designing and running The Moth College Program and teaching storytelling workshops for literary festivals, corporations, schools and colleges. She leads storytelling workshops for multiple departments at MIT, taught at the 2019 NAFA Conference, and is the regular host for MIT’s FAIL!, a twice-yearly storytelling event. In 2018, she curated and directed Synaptic Stories at the MIT Museum, as part of the Beautiful Brain exhibit. She thinks you have a story to tell.

Lunch will be provided.
