WORLDNARRATIVES: FOREIGN FAUX PAS – STORIES OF NAVIGATING CULTURAL DIFFERENCES

  • 49th State Brewing Company 717 West 3rd Avenue Anchorage, AK, 99514 United States (map)

The Alaska World Affairs Council is now recruiting storytellers:  Have you had one of those “oh no” moments while traveling abroad that made you realize the culture you were experiencing was a little different from home? Are you a transplant to Alaska who has experienced culture shock adjusting to Alaskan norms? Have you traveled abroad and gleefully immersed yourself in a new culture?

The second annual WorldNarratives story evening will be formatted in the spirit of Arctic Entries. As such, “your story must be yours and it must be true. The best Arctic Entries story you can pitch has a clear beginning, middle, and end; something to lose or to gain (i.e., it matters to you!); and fits our seven-minute format.”
