Storymobile

Storymobile is a moveable community engagement space that makes it easy to share, display, collect, and generate your stories.


Share, Display, and Preserve what matters to you at Storymobile, an invention of the Saint Paul Almanac.
This solar-powered roving art space travels behind a bicycle with ready tools-iPads, cameras, microphones, amps, and keyboards, as well as good old paper and pencil-to share and record your stories directly on the street. 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. We email your story created in any of these forms to you. And we archive these stories as a memory of the experience. The Storymobile, reminiscent of kiosks near train stations in the early part of the twentieth century, is a place to gather in community to create, perform, work, and exchange ideas across generations and cultures.
