Join First Person Arts and WHYY for one week of live recordings for Commonspace, their new radio show and podcast. Whatever tomorrow’s news cycle may bring, Commonspace has the real life stories to put it all into context.

Each night, experience something new! Four distinct curated performances feature remarkable true accounts that speak to the pressing issues of our time. Do you have a story to tell? Take to the stage with your own experience on the theme “Battle Scars” at a First Person Arts StorySlam competition.

Hear a story, share a story, and feel a bit more connected to the world. What we have in common may surprise you.


See more and save! Grab your Commonspace LIVE All Access Pass for just $35, ($50 value), and see any Commonspace series performance throughout the week.
