Voices of the City
We call it storytelling for adventurous audiences! For 12+ years, Strong Words has hosted intimate evenings of stories, poetry + music in the heart of Silver Lake/ Atwater Village. We draw wordsmiths and performing artists from the entire Los Angeles cultural landscape for a magical evening under the stars in our glorious courtyard.

Who We Are

It’s a place of warmth that offers storytellers and audience members a place to congregate and share community.
It matters dearly.
Have stories/will travel.

Audiences have enjoyed special Strong Words performances at the Autry Museum of the American West, the Los Angeles Central Library, the Palm Springs Art Museum and at the Coachella Valley Repertory Theatre.
A wonderful, heartwarming, life-affirming event.
