In the polarized climate in which we live, with levels of discrimination and vilification of "the other" on the rise, autobiographical storytelling is a powerful reminder that we are all human. Story District creates the platform and provides the tools for everyday Washingtonians to reflect on their life experiences and tell their stories in meaningful and memorable ways. Rigorous coaching helps participants identify and craft their narratives and connect authentically with an audience. The process can be transformative, requiring self-reflection, promoting self-awareness, and helping people find meaning in their lives. And Story District creates an environment that is welcoming to all ages, races, cultures, abilities, and sexual and gender identities. Performances are opportunities to speak and to share. It's hard to dehumanize someone or disregard the reality of our common humanity when we hear a personal story that is told with power.
