What is the Story Corp?

Well, mostly, it's you....  

The SCA is something all of us have built, and our stories create its history. Come share your piece of that history with “Our SCA Stories.” Choose your day and time in the schedule (link below) for a storytelling opportunity. All stories matter: have you been in the Society a year? Tell us about your first year! Have you been in “mumblety-mumph” years? Speak up! We want to hear your tale too! The “Our SCA Stories” venue is open daily during the SCA 50 Year Anniversary Celebration.

Tentative time slots can begin Sunday, June 19 - Friday, June 24, 9 am - 5 pm through Saturday, June 25, 9 am - 3pm. “Our SCA Stories” will be performed in Hendricks Exposition Hall, which is a large (air-conditioned!) hall. All of the history hall displays are in there, and we have a space set aside for speakers/panels/performers with seating for up to 50. When you come to tell your story, you’ll have an appreciative audience! Keep stories 3 minutes to 10 minutes in length: there will be timers set, and coordinators to help you tell your best tales!

You can sign up to share your 3 to 10 minute stories with us at:   History Hall Storytelling Sign Up

Looking for inspiration? Coordinate with the daily themes in the History Display Hall:

Sunday, June 19 - Those We Have Lost (Maitresse Genevieve Chatisse de Vaucresson)
Monday, June 20 - Our Beginnings
Tuesday, June 21 - Great Wars and Interkingdom Events
Wednesday, June 22 - Royalty & Regalia
Thursday, June 23 - Non-Kingdom Groups

Speak off the cuff, or use notecards, an outline or…read to us. Tell us an SCA Story!
