About the Project
In a collaborative production with Delaware County Community College and First Person Arts, Philadelphia’s premiere storytelling theatre company, students and faculty will share their experiences coping with the stress this pandemic year has put on mental health. These experiences will be shared using multiple artistic mediums. Delaware County Community College counselor Renee Council will be on hand to comment on the issues our stories discuss and provide resources for anyone struggling with mental health issues. Please join us for an evening of shared experiences on this important topic.

About First Person Arts
True, personal stories are the raw materials of our practice. First person art includes storytellers practicing across multiple disciplines (i.e., theatre, memoir, visual arts, spoken word, dance, etc.) from the point of view of someone expressing or sharing events that he or she is experiencing or has experienced; and, those working to accurately depict people, places, activities and events. At First Person Arts, they help people develop their own true, personal stories for performance and personal growth. Learn More »
