Welcome to the First Person Arts Ticketing Website

thank you

Please join me as I support First Person Arts with a year-end gift. Their work unleashing the power of voice transforms individuals and the community.
Just as they helped me transform.

I learned that First Person Arts offered workshops where people learn to tell a story. I was ready to try it. Our workshop leader helped the small group develop our stories. We attended the next StorySlam and put our names in the bucket. Maybe they wouldn't pick my name out of the bucket. They did. I tripped over the mic chord as I walked to the stage. I stood too close to the mic. It was too high. The host and I struggled to adjust it. Finally, I started my story.

It didn't matter what you looked like, what you said, how you said it - at First Person Arts people accepted your stories and you - just as you were. You could stutter, sweat, or even cry on stage, and they applauded at the end.

First Person Arts helped me overcome my fear. They created this warm, nurturing environment where I could be myself, find my own voice, and share that voice with the world. They embraced me. That's why I joined their board of directors.
