A Salon to Share Stories





We are everyday men and women. We struggle. We survive.  We find hope amidst chaos. We piece words together.

With all the negative stereotype images and talk, we all need something different. 

A Storytelling Event with Moving Images, Song, Sketches, New Works.

As the latest session of In my Shoes was winding down, I was overwhelmed with how much I had enjoyed this latest experience.  The stories, the not-your-Mother’s poetry, the live music, the comedy and assortment of wonderfully open and delightful performers and audience filled my soul.  There is no other way to describe it….over the course of a few hours I laughed, cried, empathized, related and digested a veritable feast for my soul.   – Virginia Kirby, Peachtree City, GA



Cuts through the day to day defenses and facades, to get to the soul of the human being inside.  

By giving you a glimpse of the world In My Shoes, we discover how close and connected we truly are.  

Join us in a heartfelt, joyous evening/afternoon of diverse voices and ages

Spoken word events are one of the finest ways to listen to storytelling and connect with diverse people. The expressions of the artists are rhythmic in sound, deep in emotions and spoken from the heart of experience.” – Raquel Lett-Anderson, Atlanta, GA
