Artists Standing Strong Together (ASST, pronounced “assist”, www.artistsstandingstrongtogether.net) has a Sacred Storytelling live virtual program on the third Saturday of the month. Sacred Storytelling is our most beloved monthly program, always a way to have your heart moved, inspire your soul and remind us those before us. This month our Sacred Storytelling Program will be a shorter program with a honoring of J.J. Reneaux, the amazing person and storyteller. We will also share about National Storytelling Network’s Emerging Artist Scholarship, and encouraging people to apply for this scholarship and/or donate to it.
