In this special video production, we link the stories from 6 individuals in the way we draw lines between the stars to create constellations. The event was originally scheduled outdoors but has been moved inside to the Pioneer Room on the top floor of JUMP.
“Starry Story Night: LiBRA” was originally commissioned by Boise State University’s “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Summit” hosted by the Blue Sky Institute in 2020. This is the first time you can watch with an in-person audience. The evening includes about an hour of stories and special live appearances by some of the storytellers.
Our starrytellers faced the question “when did the scales tip for you?”—a reference to the astro sign, the emblem of which is a set of scales.
