Speak Up, Rise Up Storytelling Festival

Did you serve in the military? Are you the spouse or family member of a veteran? Are you a civilian who works within the military or veterans community? We want to hear from you!

In partnership with Speak Up Rise Up 2018, we are offering a supportive, welcoming space for you to shape and refine a story you'd like to tell. What personal story makes you want to speak up and rise up for our NYC veterans community? What issue do you feel most passionate about as a member of our community? We want to hear stories that need to be told.. and that help regular New Yorkers better understand what our community needs and is working to change.

Come share a fun and inspiring four hours of sharing and refining your personal story, and supporting your fellow storytellers. If you're ready to join us on stage at The Tank for our Community Showcase on Monday, August 6th, we hope to have you in our lineup!

Today's workshop facilitator will be Asher Novek, a longtime supporter of the NYC Veterans Alliance and an active civic leader, tech designer, media producer, and a regular performer on NYC's comedy and storytelling stages. 

This is a free event, but REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED so we know you'll be with us!

Register here for the workshop on August 4, 11am-3pm. And watch for updates on Facebook here.
