First Person Arts Festival presents WOMEN ON THE REVOLUTION #IMNOJANEDOE
November 3, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 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. Jeffrey Epstein, Harvey Weinstein, R. Kelly, Bill Cosby, et.al. We all know their names, but can we as easily name the brave women who dared tell their stories? Join us for a celebration of the power of a woman’s voice, featuring true personal stories from survivors and the journalists who amplified the voices of a movement. Produced by: Elaine Lindy Featuring: Megan Twohey, Larissa Marten, Jim Derogatis, Annette John-Hall, Emily Woods and Colleen Kennedy
