San Diego dramatists connect with storytellers currently isolated in assisted and skilled nursing facilities. Join us for performances of their stories by San Diego actors in this special event that is free to the public. These stories will be streamed through New Village Arts Theatre’s Virtual Arts Program. There will be an opening screening with live panel discussion on February 26, 7:00 p.m. and a second panel discussion with new stories on Friday, March 26, 7:00 p.m. All stories will be streamed via New Village Arts thru April 5, 2021 (all times PST).
This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit calhum.org
