We engage the research-based and high performing Story Bridge method to empower social transformation and regenerate communities from within. Facilitated by our team of esteemed artists and scholars, Story Bridge elevates personal stories into awe-inspiring artistic experience, in the process engaging deep dialogue, enabling authentic relationship building, catalyzing collective transformation, and build Beloved Community.
The "Play-in-a-Day" workshop is a powerful way to bring diverse people together and build a committed group to jump start change campaigns. Organizations and communities use Play-in-a-Day to address focused issues such as affordable housing, racial reconciliation, etc. Evaluation data shows Story Bridge workshops are highly effective in enabling deep bonding, open collaboration and real action.
True personal stories are transformed into life-changing theater. It builds community capacity from within and across boundaries. Research has shown remarkable impact of Story Bridge community performances.
