You are invited to contribute to the oral history of the XOXO festival and community.

XOXO is something special. Those who’ve had a chance to attend one of the four, soon to be five, years of festivals will attest to this.

From its inception as a crowdfunded experiment created by two ambitions guys in Portland. To the vibrant conversations happening in 186 Slack channels. To the daily manifestation of the festival vision and values in a 30,000 SQ foot warehouse next to a bread factory. The XOXO community has grown and deepened over time, becoming something beyond just four amazing days in the fall.

How has your experiences at XOXO changed your life?

STREAM PDX our community podcast studio will have it’s grand opening at what could be the final XOXO festival. So it’s a perfect time to invite the community into the studio to share their stories of XOXO: Past, Present, and Future. We will collect, organize and eventually put them together in some way, maybe a podcast ?! More to come on this.

Grab a friend and just come in and reminisce.

During the festival, attendees can sign up for a storytelling slot or drop in during an evening drop-in session (Thu, Fri & Sat 7–9pm). There will be an interviewer there to help you tell your story. Look for the beautiful Airstream!

The community is scattered across the globe. We want to hear from all of you!

If you aren’t attending this year or just wanna do it on your own, you can submit your voice memos and audio files via email.

All the details are on the STREAM PDX site.

Please share! We want to reach everyone with a story.
