Bring The Facing Project to your community
The Facing Project is a nonprofit that creates a more understanding and empathetic world through stories that inspire action, and we work with community leaders, educators, government officials, and artists to develop a steering committee to determine the topic/issue their community would like to “face.”
Once determined, the steering committee is trained on The Facing Project model, and local writers and storytellers are recruited and paired one-on-one for listening sessions to collaborate on first-person narratives told from the perspective of the storytellers.
These stories are published in a book through The Facing Project Press, distributed throughout the community as a resource, brought to life on stage through theatre, and then used in listening circles at various locations (libraries, schools, colleges/universities, etc.) to provide a facilitated opportunity for members of the broader community to have safe spaces to explore the issue/topic, ask tough questions, and dig deeper into the human condition that connects us all.
