Storytelling For Businesses & Community Organizations
Bring First Person Arts’ storytelling expertise to your business or community organization! We offer customizable programs, all rooted in the power of storytelling, to empower individuals, build community, and open up dialogue around meaningful issues.
Stories can heal. Stories can build community.
Our Applied Storytelling programming places first person storytelling at the forefront of the healing process and uses it as a vehicle to build stronger communities around the issues facing us all.
FPA is regularly engaged by a diverse range of organizations to create customized storytelling programs, which tackle specific issues of concern to our partner communities. These stories are then shared with the public through the First Person Arts Podcast, YouTube Channel, press coverage, and live artistic performances.
Applied Storytelling brings together instructors, actors, artists, musicians, neighbors, and friends to celebrate triumph over adversity, and further our partners’ strategic initiatives creatively.
Speaking Your Truth
First Person Arts’ Applied Storytelling programs can take many forms — from a workshop that helps participants to make sense of trauma in their lives, to a raucous public program that celebrates life and laughter, our work always reflects the specific truths of the communities that we work with.
We’re proud of this work, and we can do it for you.
If you’d like to have us design an Applied Storytelling project for your group, please contact Neil Bardhan.
