If you have a sibling, you have a story!

Join Temple University for a series of sibling storytelling workshops for people with disabilities who are siblings, or siblings of people with disabilities.
Stories from First Person Arts will help you craft a personal story about our first friends and enemies: our siblings! Through guided writing exercises and other techniques, we’ll uncover true tales about how disability affects family. 
  • Connect with other siblings through your shared and unique experiences 
  • All participants will be invited to perform at the culminating Sib Slam storytelling performance on April 13, directed by Jen Cleary, at Christ Church Neighborhood House in Philadelphia
  • Come alone or with a sibling
  • Open to storytellers of all levels
Join First Person Arts for one or more Saturday Workshops between 10:00am and 12:00pm:
  • February 6
