Writer Barbara Kingsolver has written that stories have a unique “capacity for invoking moral and social responsibility.” It is through the “imagined possibilities” of story that a movement toward “a more peaceful and humane world” begins.  Simply put, the Fest’s goal is to dismantle racism and prejudice and foster communication and connectedness in a unique way—through storytelling.
