Experience Eastern North is looking for local storytellers!

Join a cohort of residents from Eastern North Philadelphia in a storytelling skill-building series designed to elevate neighborhood voices as preparation to lead local tours that shine a spotlight on the rich arts and culture of their community. This is an invitation to creatively collaborate with other talented neighborhood storytellers of North Philly to preserve our histories, languages, cultures, traditions, barrios and more! Jump into the world of storytelling and film with Philly native Gabriela Serena Sanchez, the director for this project. 

Learn more about the project and sign up for our info session on June 3rd at 2pm through our website:
