About the Event

First Person Arts includes storytellers practicing across multiple disciplines such as theatre, memoir, visual arts, spoken word, dance, and theatre. We share the point of view of someone expressing events that they are experiencing or have experienced. First Person Arts also produces those working to accurately depict people, places, activities, and events; documentary art. In documentary art, the message is more important than the messenger.
For the 2020 Fringe Festival, First Person Arts and Da Vinci Art Alliance are collaborating to produce the Virtual StorySlam: Mother of Invention. This project, conceived long before COVID-19 struck the United States, has grown to truly embody its name.
In this new "virtual" normal, First Person Arts and Da Vinci Art Alliance will push the boundaries and create an interactive storytelling event utilizing both the spoken word and the visual arts.
Necessity IS the mother of invention.
