Tell us your story

We all have a story to tell. We all have aspirations. Regardless of where we start in life, we all deserve the opportunity to unlock our full potential. Project Story seeks to explore global aspirations for freedom, family, hope, and reward. Listen to our stories. Tell us your story.

Our personal stories are what make our families and communities what they are. That is why LINC is partnering with Amway to help capture the community voice with Project Story.

Storytelling is an important tool to connect with people, understand their needs, develop a common language and create a dialogue for
innovation. We want to hear and understand your stories. And we want to share them with the world, so that we might build and strengthen the connections between us, between you and your community, between your community and the global community, between all of us.

These stories teach us and help us understand that every life matters, that every story weaves into the fabric of our culture and informs us of what’s truly meaningful in life. It's a way for people in the community to come together and share stories, to celebrate every life and start a dialogue
that can lead to common goals and aspirations. Together, we believe we can create a world where opportunity is truly for everyone.

Join us at the LINC Gallery at 341 Hall SE on August 26th or 27th any time from 3pm to 7pm to contribute to the dialogue. Introductions and interviews may only take 30 minutes, but there will also be music and refreshments, and a chance to take a look at new local art in our brand new gallery.

If you are interested in learning more, or to RSVP, email [email protected] or call 616.451.9140 x240.
