We believe we write our future with the stories we narrate, and we are committed to co-creating a more inclusive, connected, and just world. We envision a local community that honors, seeks out, and is shaped by the many histories, identities, and stories that reflect the people we are in this place.



Our mission is to use oral history and storytelling to spark conversation, connection, and social change in the South Sound and beyond.

We are a local nonprofit in Olympia, WA committed to gathering people together to share stories that have been forgotten, silenced, or ignored throughout history. Since 2016, we have woven stories that often go unshared into the fabric of our public life. We work alongside service providers, activists, and other problem-solvers to tell nuanced and inclusive stories—people’s histories—of who we are in this homeplace. We help correct collective amnesia that perpetuates oppressive and harmful patterns because we believe the future is written with the stories we narrate, and we want to co-create a more inclusive, connected, and just world.

Oral history and personal narrative are at the center of our work. We experiment with many formats. Through live storytelling, theatre, community conversations, artistic collaborations, podcasts, film screenings, and exhibits, we amplify local knowledge, share powerful stories and ideas, and ask what is possible.
