    The Folk & The Lore: Something from Nothing, Stories of the Creative Process

    Saturday July 11, 2015 / 6 – 8 pm

    From the creative mind of Jessi LeMay comes the storytelling and narrative filmmaking project The Folk & the Lore. This multimedia project aims to collect, archive, and tell stories from Reno and throughout the region through photography, short films, and live storytelling events that will be held regularly at the Nevada Museum of Art. Together, we believe that when you know your neighbor’s story, not only do you feel more connected to your community, but those stories become part of your own.

    Join this premiere event for an evening of storytelling and films based on the creative process: “Something from Nothing”. Doors open at 5pm for social hour and chez louie cash bar. Stories begin at 6pm.
