In December 2015, members of Au Collective came together under the direction of Kristianne Huntsberger to create a live-recording of a remarkable collection of tales that help us glimpse the heroic in the everyday and recognize the hero within.
"This project was born from our need for better stories. When you're a woman, or queer or not white in our culture, you too often hear stories told about you that aren't empowering. Sometimes you start telling these terrible tales about yourself. We need to tell our own stories, even the tough ones and show ourselves as the heroes in our lives.
Building from Emily Dickinson's inspiring invitation to "tell the whole truth, but tell it slant," I invite storytellers to dig into personal experience and recast even the most difficult events into something heroic."
