Fulfillament is a storytelling event that took place in Traverse City on January 15, 2015. Five storytellers from the Grand Traverse business community took the stage to tell how they found fulfillment in their journey- the inside story. Each storyteller issued a challenge for the audience to do something to find fulfillment. At the end of the night, audience members individually selected a challenge, and connections were made to hold one another accountable to that. Audience members submitted and application for a $500 grant for good idea that needs some help to get it moving.
