2018 STORYTELLING COLOR_Cancelled.jpg

Dear community of supporters, 
We're saddened that our fall 2018 performances had to be cancelled. We are hopeful to be able to share next steps soon. For now, we are so grateful for your support. We are so proud of our storytellers, they are brilliant and they have done incredible work that will see a stage sometime soon.

YMP's "Storytelling for Change" Fellowship trains new and experienced writers, artists, organizers, educators, and local community members in the power of crafting and telling detailed, heart-moving, and inspiring personal stories that touch upon themes of civil injustice and civil liberties. Stories have power. The narratives we write and tell ourselves shape our lives and communities; they inspire action, bring nuance to memory and history, and help us envision a future world.
