Event Details

Do we tell stories or do stories tell us? Northern Irish storyteller Gareth Higgins believes it’s a bit of both. With humor and heart, Gareth uses story to guide us into telling new stories that alter our experience of ourselves and our world. Gareth is much in demand as a storyteller and festival curator – come to hear him and you’ll see why.

Join Gareth in the Attic Space at Chief O’Neill’s Pub, voted one of the top Irish pubs in the world. Enjoy a pint as you listen to this lively storyteller.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door. Advance sales end 24 hours prior to the performance.

About Gareth Higgins

Gareth Higgins was born in Belfast in 1975, grew up during the northern Ireland Troubles, and lives in North Carolina, where he was the founding director of the Wild Goose Festival and now works as a writer and storyteller. Movies (and a theatrical mother) made his imagination come to life, and he is a grateful inheritor of the gifts of queer theology, non-violent activism, and anabaptist patriotic skepticism. He writes and speaks about connection to the earth, cinema and dreaming, peace and making justice, the gift of fear, and how to take life seriously without believing your own propaganda.
