There are many ways to join the movement! As a grassroots activism through storytelling arts movement, The Scheherazade Project needs help from people everywhere to succeed.

Although COVID-19/CoronaVirus has made hosting live events impossible at the moment, we’re optimistically calling for auditions for Featured Storytellers to perform via livestream one per day from July 25th – November 2nd 2020. We will also include three-four larger shows to anchor the months-long event. In the event we can gather in-person, we will include live events in front of the White House.

Featured storytellers are chosen by a committee made up of members of the Scheherazade Project’s board of directors and other members of the Scheherazade Project community.

Stories can be of any artform – spoken word, poetry, music, dance, painting, sculpture, you name it! They need not be political in nature. the Scheherazade Project stories can both distract from and draw attention to the dire situation we’re in. After all, we should release good energy into the world when we need it most!
