If there’s one trait common to people of all cultures, it’s the appreciation of a good tale. We all like stories. Utica Firefly is a collaborative effort to document central New York stories, to record the people, places, and events that form the fabric of our community. At the same time, we hope to promote and further the art of storytelling.
The stories you’ll hear and see might be told in documentary style, they might be interview segments, or they might be offerings from our live storytelling showcases. Utica Firefly is an expansion of those live events, held at the Tramontane Café in Utica. Firefly nights feature true stories of personal experiences centering on a general theme, told by randomly selected audience members without the aid of notes. Have a story you’d like to share? Come to the next Firefly event or contact us for details on how to submit your story to Utica Firefly. uticafirefly.com
