003 Crafty Storyteller: Kate Caldwell

What I love about storytelling is…going to places with myself, and my own experiences, that I don’t necessarily explore if I’m not trying to explain them to somebody else.

That’s Kate.  Storyteller, writer, actor, and yarn-worker.  Kate is a powerful orator, and she assembled the team that gave birth to Testify, Austin’s monthly storytelling show.  She sat down to chat about building a creative institution, shaping stories, savoring the dynamic exchange between a performer and audience, and knitting in public.

Testify’s performances take place on the last Thursday of every month in at Spiderhouse Ballroom at 7:30pm (in Austin, Texas).  There are different themes each month, and you can submit your story HERE. You can also find @testifyatx on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter, or become a supporting member via Patreon.

Have you been to a Testify show to perform or watch?  Tell us about it in the comments or write to us on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #chattycrafties.  We’d love to hear about your experience!
