Storytellers Project: Here and There – Phoenix

September 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

“Here and There” is a live storytelling event all about intimacy and authenticity, showing the human side of what is happening at the border, and an extension of The Storytellers Project.

This event will highlight stories from people in Phoenix with compelling insights into the region’s relationship to the border and Mexico, but also into what everyday life is like here in Arizona and what it means to be from “there.”

These are the unexpected stories – some charming, some harrowing, some funny – from Arizona who have insights the rest of America should hear so we can all better understand what is at stake in this conversation around border wall construction.
