The pandemic made us pivot to a virtual class and showcase.
On Friday, July 24th we held a showcase of community storytelling based in the experiences of Eastern North Philadelphia residents. For several weeks, neighbors had undergone a storytelling skill-building series to elevate neighborhood voices and prepare them to lead local tours that shine a spotlight on the rich arts and culture of their community. As a culminating celebration, participants shared their stories on a live event via Zoom and Facebook.
