Want to Live a Great Story? Upcoming conference planned

Zach Horvath created the Live A Great Story movement. Dave Creaney/AMERICAN-STATESMAN.

You know those snappy “Live a Great Story” stickers that have popped up around Austin? (Read my story about them here.) The folks behind that movement are hosting a mini-conference next week to, as they put it, “celebrate Austin awesomeness.”

The event is scheduled for 2:42 p.m. to 6:59 p.m. April 29 (these folks are specific!) at Big Ass Canvas Gallery, 440 West Second Street.

Zach Horvath prepares a Live a Great Story reminder. Dave Creaney/AMERICAN-STATESMAN.

It’ll be broken into four parts. After a quick introduction with snacks and drinks, the event will begin with a 50-minute lightning round to highlight some Austin movers and shakers. Next up? An interactive poetry experience followed by running around Second Street leaving poems on random car windows. The group will reconvene to listen to an inspiring guest speaker, then close with a surprise session. (Bunnies? Rock climbing? No telling.)

Admission includes a LIVE Inspiration Kit. Tickets are $13.45 to $21.83 (use promocode ATX for 20 percent off). Purchase them here.

In the meantime, tag your photos with #liveagreatstory if you want to engage with the movement.
