Chris, Host - “Return to Sender” First Person Arts StorySlamSome things in life end up back where they started. What we put out there has a way of coming back. Whether it’s unrequited emotions or actions. We all react differently to getting back what we gave, and those are the stories that shape who we are. Whether you come with a story, or an ear to hear one, let’s put it out there and see what we get back in Return to Sender. In the meantime, take a stroll down memory lane and watch the top storytellers from our Winner’s playlist on our Youtube channel.

BEyond Numbess and Anger

BEyond Numbess and AngerThese feelings are shared by so many people today. How do you move past them? How do WE move past them? With courage, laughter, and a little help. Join us for this rare, authentic moment when four males of color: Comedians Ali Siddiq and Che Guerrero, Dr. Neil Bardhan, and Activist Edwin Desamour talk about the true experiences that lead to these and other feelings. In conversation with co-hosts Dr. Jean Wright and Gabriel Bryant, we'll discuss ways to move past numbness and anger toward wellness. The event is sponsored by The City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health & Intellectual disAbility Services' Engaging Males of Color (EMOC) initiative in collaboration with First Person Arts.
