Creating Community, One Story at a Time
Rabbit Box fosters the art of storytelling in Athens, Georgia by providing a forum for people to share true stories from their lives, showcasing the stunning diversity of the people who live here. In addition to making us laugh, weep, and marvel at the human spirit, these stories bring us closer to a common understanding, a deeper sense of history, and a shared community. Our storytellers are eclectic and grassroots, drawing from the talents of both amateurs and experienced performers. We invite everyone to speak and to listen as our collective story emerges!
Come to any of our events as a storyteller or an audience member! We’ll be meeting the 3rd Tuesday of nearly every month at the VFW near Bishop Park from 7 – 9 PM. To attend, you can buy tickets right here on our website. At each event, 8 people will tell their stories based on a given theme. Anyone can tell a story as long as they follow the guidelines and are in the line-up for that show. We offer free coaching if you’d like some assistance in shaping your story. As a 501(c) (3) nonprofit, we appreciate any support that helps us continue our mission!
