What is a SLOlio?

Dec 5, 2016

Broadcast date: 12/8/16

The definition of an “olio” is a “mixture or medley; a hodgepodge; a collection of various artistic or literary works or musical pieces; a miscellany.” SLOlio is a gathering, a collection, an “olio” of true stories and story-loving people. Creators of the monthly storytelling event in San Luis Obispo want others to think of it as a kind of a “story slam.” However way you describe it, for attendees of SLOlio, it is an opportunity to come together to celebrate good stories, told by both seasoned storytellers and those less experienced, to share their stories.

Join host Fred Munroe as he speaks with members of SLOlio, storyteller and founder of SLOlio Kirk Henning, and regulars at SLOlio, performer and playwright Jean Moelter and Michael Kaplan, Fund Development Manager for Transitions Mental Health Association, as well as a local playwright. They will talk about what SLOlio is, and how it works to bring people together to share and listen to stories that not only entertain, but also promote deeper connections and understandings among ourselves and our community.
