On June 30, the Moab Valley Multicultural Center (MVMC) will introduce an exciting new cultural event, “Dialogues of Diversity: Multicultural Stories of Strength.”

This dinner theater is designed to connect people, community and humanity through the art of storytelling.

“Dialogues of Diversity: Multicultural Stories of Strength” was inspired by The Hispanic Women’s Project and their Telluride production of stories from local immigrant women.

MVMC Executive Director Rhiana Medina explained, “We loved the idea of locals telling their own stories. The staff was passionate about inviting a variety of people to tell stories of strength and perseverance.”

The theme of the evening is being a newcomer in a new place. Five Moabites have crafted their own stories with the guidance of professional storyteller, Steffani Raff. Each story offers a unique perspective.

“Dialogues of Diversity: Multicultural Stories of Strength” will be held at the MARC on June 30, with doors opening at 5 p.m. and the stories begin at 5:30. After the show, a light dinner will be served. The Moab Valley Multicultural Center invites locals, visitors, art lovers, and especially those unfamiliar with the MVMC to attend. Spaces are limited. Contact Joanna Onorato, outreach coordinator Moab Valley Multicultural Center, for ticket and event information by phone at 435-259-5444 or by email at community@moabmc.org. Tickets are $35 and available at the MVMC, 156 North 100 West. All proceeds benefit the Moab Valley Multicultural Center.
