Hello Sunshine and Together Live are partnering to bring a touring live event experience to Boch Center Wang Theatre on Saturday, November 3. The event features authentic storytelling and inspiring conversations for and by intersectional, intergenerational women. Confirmed participants include: Nicole Byer, Yara Shahidi, Cheryl Strayed, MILCK, Cleo Wade.
To promote female authorship around the world and build communities amongst women who are unable to attend the events in-person, Hello Sunshine and Together Live will collaborate to develop premium digital series based on the content of the live events that will be distributed via YouTube, Facebook, and several other platforms. The first two digital series will be “Powered By” and “Story Scouts.”
Hello Sunshine x Together Live will feature beloved authors, thought leaders, musicians, comedians, celebrities and ordinary people alike who will share raw, real stories from their own lives. The evening events will feature storytelling, music, laughter and a big dose of heart & soul. The Hello Sunshine x Together Live Tour will visit ten cities across the United States and Canada in an effort to cultivate a growing community of women whose experiences are as diverse as their backgrounds.
Together Live was founded in 2016 by Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, WME’s Head of Worldwide Literary, Lectures and Conference Divisions, who will continue to emcee the events.
• “Powered By” is a six-part series where celebrities and thought leaders share candid, untold stories that remind the world of the true power of women through conversation.
• “Story Scouts” centers on our Hello Sunshine x Together speakers for a funny and optimistic conversation with a very special guest. Each episode features an extraordinary woman accompanied by someone they know personally who has mentored or inspired them. Throughout these intergenerational conversations, our speakers will draw out their companion’s real life story and also bravely share their own.
Led by Hello Sunshine’s all-female podcast producing team, the partnership also includes an original podcast, Hello Sunshine x Together Podcast. The podcast will be an episodic companion series containing an edited narrative drawn from the events’ keynote speakers, comedians, and family meetings, each assembled into compelling standalone themed episodes with a dynamic host threading the narrative together.
