The Storymobile is a moveable community engagement space—on wheels and solar powered—where artists/writers and community members work with residents in writing, speaking, performing, and recording the stories of their lives.

Decked out with iPads, Storymobile makes it easy to share, display, and collect our stories. This “stories on wheels” is pulled by an electric bicycle with ready tools—iPads, cameras, microphones, amps, and keyboards, as well as good old paper and pencil—to share and record your stories.

Storymobile expands on the Saint Paul Almanac’s mission of highlighting authentic community stories by providing a space to share your story. It is the Saint Paul Almanac on wheels; honoring place, connection, community, and process through the power of story.

You can perform your spoken word pieces and have them recorded. You can share a story on camera, type your story, or handwrite your story.

Your written and typed stories can be emailed directly to you.
