Freeing Refrains is a prototype storytelling space imagined for Biracial & Rural (BnR), a community of care and storytelling space. In 2022 Freeing Refrains is inviting guest storytellers to share and complexify our reflections on what is restricting and empowering.

The current BnR dream is to come together in arts based retreats over the summer and continue the connection virtually over the winter. Retreats culminate with participants sharing their story at an Open Mic event to foster community dialogue. Read more at http://www.pointsoflightmusic.net/p/biracial-rural.html.
