First Person Arts Festival presents “Life, Death, Life Again”
November 13, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Annual First Person Arts Festival is a vital part of Philadelphia’s cultural landscape. It is the only festival of-its-kind in the world dedicated to presenting art based on real life stories by well-known and emerging artists working across disciplines. Festival programming connects audiences of all backgrounds around the commonality and wonderful nuances within the human experience. We have presented authors, poets, activists, actors, comedians/satirists, stand-up storytellers, theatre artists, monologists, musicians, and podcasters to Philadelphia audiences for 18 years. Life, Death, Life Again: Children Sentenced to Die in Prison shares the stories of people sentenced to die in prison for violent crimes committed as children, and a victim’s grandson who chose to lead with forgiveness.
