Curated by Logan Mutz and Roscoe Mutz

The Screening Room,

127 E. Congress Street, Tucson, $8

Calculated, spur-of-the-moment, unnecessary...whatever the type, life is full of risks.  Take one yourself and share your story!

Storytellers: U.S. Peace Corps volunteer, Renate Schulz; and many more!

Storyteller Bios: 

Renate Schulz was born in Germany and came to the United States at the age of eighteen. She holds a Ph.D. in Foreign Language Education from The Ohio State University. She retired from her professorship in the Department of German Studies at the University of Arizona in 2009, after spending almost thirty years at that institution in various academic and administrative positions.

Remembering the life-changing effect of her first Peace Corps service in Nigeria (1963 – 1965), she

rejoined the U.S. Peace Corps in 2011 and was sent to Mali, West Africa. Due to a military coup in that country she was evacuated in April 2012. She spent 2013 - 2014 in Mexico as a Peace Corps Response Volunteer, teaching English in a faculty development program at the Universidad Autonoma del Estado de Hidalgo.

More storyteller bios coming soon!

Storytelling is a way to make connections with diverse and different people that you may not meet in your every day life. Because these stories are from our lives they may be amazing, messy, enlightening, disturbing, and entertaining . . . and more.


Six invited storytellers have ten minutes to talk about a specific theme. The stories are not read or memorized, they are told from the life experiences and creativity of the teller.
