For the second year, REI Co-op has teamed up with the crew behind The Moth to bring live storytelling events about the outdoors to local communities. The Moth began in 1997 as a way to promote the art and craft of storytelling and since then has presented thousands of stories, told live, through Mainstage, StorySLAM and GrandSLAM events.
By embedding the outdoors, nature and adventure into the nightly theme for select Moth events, the co-op is helping the outdoor community tell their stories of a life well lived. These events invite a new generation of the outdoor curious – and the outdoor enthusiast – to meet and learn about the co-op and share powerful stories of the importance of the outdoors.
REI hosts onsite activities to surprise and delight a new audience and say thank you to local members. Check out upcoming co-op sponsored Moth events in Chicago (July 10) and Atlanta (July 23).
