Hip-Hop Heros at the Chestnut Hill StorySlam

When I say Chestnut, yall say Hill!

There's a “first” time for everything — including a StorySlam in Chestnut Hill! This past Friday First Person Arts took a road trip to our first First Person StorySlam at the Venetian Social Club.

We heard stories from many “first”-time StorySlammers, including First Person Arts' very own Founder and Executive Director, Vicki Solot.

A good number of our “first” stories had to do with dodging dangerous situations. We bewildered a bandit and maintained a “jingle” in our step in the midst of trouble. But it was our winning story by first-time StorySlammer, Jos, that t

old how Hip-Hop legends Run DMC, Rapper EP and Fresh and them saved a life.

Check out stories by winning storyteller and Audience Favorite, Jos and First Person Arts Founder, Vicki in the videos below.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Chestnut Hill StorySlam! Special thanks to all of our storytellers — particularly, our “first”-timers.
