Dear Friend, 
After a rich collaboration in the spring of 2018, we're thrilled to announce that we are once again working with the nationally acclaimed storytelling organization and podcast, The Moth!
When we last worked with The Moth, our weekend-long workshop culminated in a Community Story Share, where members of our disability community told newly crafted stories from their wide range of experiences.
Too often stories about individuals with disabilities are limited and one-dimensional, if they appear at all. It was powerful to witness the every day stories of individuals with disabilities, told in their own words. Some participants also shared at the monthly public Moth StorySLAM at The Amsterdam Bar, expanding narratives around disability in a sold-out show!
Since then, The Moth podcast has broadcast several stories from members of our community on the radio:
We're overjoyed to continue this partnership in the coming spring as we deepen our exploration of storytelling and meaningful artistic expression. Huge thanks to Headwaters Foundation for generously sponsoring this collaboration. 
With abundant thanks for all that you do,
Julie, Matt, Bree, and everyone at Upstream Arts
P.S. The Moth is one of hundreds of creative partners with whom we align, working to bring together individuals with and without disabilities in shared creative experiences. None of these would be possible without the support of individual donors like you! 
You can be part of this creative, expansive work by investing in Upstream Arts!
Invest in creativity and inclusion
