The Palm Beach County Planning Congress invites you to join us on June 26th at the Lake Worth Beach Casino for a day of storytelling. Stories help us relate to other people and are key to creating empathy and trust.  With so much at stake in our communities, storytelling reframes and even curates sensitive urban issues in an effective and compelling way so that everyone becomes "all ears".

City Stories:  We are pleased to have wonderful master storytellers and wide-ranging group of well-known planners and other professionals, community members and leaders--all of them our storytellers--weave an amazing tale of community unity and civility.

  • Keynote Storyteller: Daniel Herriges, Content Manager of Strong Towns.  Daniel is a long time contributor and founding member of the Strong Towns movement.
  • Our luncheon keynote storyteller will be Tony Garcia with Street Plans Collaborative, graciously sponsored by Kimley-Horn.
  • Through our partnership with Florida Atlantic University, we will hear from the creator of their urban storytelling festival as well as Caren Neile from NPR.
  • End of day wrap up with a Sidewalk Talk training and event out on the beach! 

"Stories puts someone else’s thoughts, experiences, and emotions in your head, which leads to sympathy/compassion for people with whom you previously shared nothing in common." John Morton
