WebPanel_Social Impact3

We use storytelling to entertain and connect, but also to learn about ourselves or to heal. Sharing personal stories empowers individuals, builds community, and destigmatizes issues. Whether we’re responding to controversial current events at a public Philly reACTS performance, or sharing in an intimate Applied Storytelling workshop, our social impact work places stories at the forefront of the healing process.
