Narratives of Pain: Healing Trauma through Storytelling

Narratives of Pain is a storytelling showcase geared towards community-centered healing. Each showcase features a collection of brave storytellers who share about personal pain, in the presence of supportive community. Stories range in subject matter and form, focused on the needs of each person.

The Narratives of Pain structure honors both storytellers and witnesses (i.e. audience) within its format. We invite all community members to experience this event, in hopes that the evening will be valuable and cathartic.

If interested in storytelling, please reach out to Zain Shamoon at
