Marcie Telander believes that every community has a rich mythology just waiting to be gathered, shared, and celebrated. In this talk, she shares her story of creating Vinotok - an annual fall-harvest festival and storytelling celebration in the town of Crested Butte, Colorado – as a way to bring the disparate local mining and ranching communities together with the more recent arrivals. U.S. News has called Vinotok, "One of the best small-town festivals in America".
