Cara, The Storyteller
“Telling true personal stories is the most powerful force for good I’ve found. The more we share our stories, the more we recognize our common humanity, the beauty in our differences, and the community we all yearn for. For me, storytelling is a path to kindness, which is the path to peace.” —Cara Lopez Lee
Cara is a winner of The Moth StorySLAM, and a featured performer for many live storytelling shows, both in-person and online, including Unheard L.A., Turbine Arts Collective, Strong Words, The Otter Story Hour, and Storytellers Project.

Cara’s Storytelling Videos, Published Writing, and Thoughts
Personal storytelling is back to the live onstage world, and what a gift to fully interact with storytellers and audiences again. Through the pandemic, I’ve been grateful to use Zoom and other online streaming platforms to stay engaged with community via the art of oral stories. But my eyes filled with tears of joy on returning to The Otter Story Hour, a show that confirms how big the heart of the storytelling world is, and how meaningful it is to laugh and cry together over our shared human experience. Here’s a link to the Facebook video of that April 10 Show. I hope you can watch all six wonderful tellers, but to find my story, Ride the Neighborhood, just forward to 1:02:44. Enjoy the ride!
