We teamed up with the Peabody Award-winning program, The Moth to develop the storytelling skills within family homelessness providers and advocacy organizations in the Puget Sound region. We invited applications from people who have a personal story related to family homelessness to attend special workshops and learn how to craft their idea into a compelling five-minute story that can be told in front of a live audience. Seventeen Seattle-area residents attended The Moth’s storytelling workshop that was held at Seattle U in February and March of 2015.
Nine of the participants were chosen to tell their poignant, beautiful, and personal stories about how they’ve been affected by homelessness in front of a live audience at the sold-out event, Home: Lost and Found — A Moth Community Showcase on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at Fremont Abbey Arts Center.
See how our storytellers found their voice in this beautiful behind-the-scenes video created by The Moth.
