Speak Up is a Hartford-based storytelling organization that seeks to promote the art of personal storytelling to a wide audience and build a community of storytellers in Connecticut. Speak Up brings professional and amateur storytellers to stage to share true stories from their lives. Speak Up founders and producers Matthew and Elysha Dicks work closely with storytellers to help them craft their stories for the stage and teach storytelling workshops to storytellers at all levels.

The Connecticut Historical Society will reopen on August 18. All on-site programs and events are canceled at this time.
