The Porch uses one of the oldest and most enduring forms of communication: live storytelling.
We believe this is an art form that not only entertains but also helps people grow in empathy, bringing them together starting with their own neighbors. Stories on the Porch are local—together they paint a rich and complex picture of the individuals that make up a particular community, which in our case is Utah Valley. The Porch is a venue for expressing diverse personalities and perspectives, unique experiences, and the personal and cultural struggles we go through.
The stories on The Porch are sometimes humorous, sometimes sad or spiritual, but they always are true stories, and always heartfelt.
