WHY: Event proceeds support Downtown Arts District. The Downtown Arts District is a dedicated nonprofit organization for advancing arts and economic development in the City of Orlando. Established in 2000, the Arts District represents and serves the arts community through signature programming and public art projects. Comprised of a series of cultural communities, the Arts District encompasses the visual arts, literature, the performing arts including music, drama, film and dance, and arts and culture-related retail businesses. The Arts District is the producer of a series of mission-based events and programs to heighten visibility for the arts including the monthly 3rd Thursday Gallery Hop, annual themed arts celebrations La Maschera and Día de los Muertos, Orlando Story Club and much more. In addition, the Arts District manages and operates CityArts Orlando, the multi-use art and cultural destination in the historic Rogers Kiene Building in Downtown Orlando.

WHO: Orlando Story Club was founded by storyteller and filmmaker Robin Cowie (“The Blair Witch Project”). After participating in the national storytelling series, The Moth, Cowie sought out to produce the same event in Central Florida and Orlando Story Club was born. The first event held at Orlando’s East End Market in March 2014 was a standing room only smash hit. Two years later, Cowie’s popular series caught the attention of Downtown Orlando’s dynamic cultural community Downtown Arts District, who teamed up to put on quarterly events at The Abbey in Downtown Orlando furthering the growth of Orlando Story Club and the arts.
