Nov 15 7:00PM - 8:30PM

Join Teya Sepinuck, Founder and Artistic Director of Theater of Witness, for an inspiring multi-media program of films and life stories from her work creating original testimonial theater with people who have lived through trauma, marginalization and/or oppression. This work with survivors of violence, war, prison and resettlement illuminates the healing power of deep listening, giving voice and finding the medicine in stories of struggle, injustice and transformation.

Teya will speak personally about the power of bearing witness and using personal and collective story to inspire healing, empathy and peace-building both for performers and audiences.

Teya is currently collaborating with Jefferson and ARTZ Philadelphia on an innovative two-year project called HeART Stories: Building Empathy Through the Arts.

This event is free and open to the public.
