We are proud to announce that we have received a second grant from the Bob Woodruff Foundation, to support and expand our ongoing programming, and launch our new initiative, The Telling Project Institute. In 2014, The Bob Woodruff Foundation made possible a tremendous leap forward for us, allowing us to double our programming. In 2015-16, we will see another significant growth in both the amount and kind of programming we will be able to offer – again, due to the Bob Woodruff Foundation. Join us in supporting our nation’s injured service members, veterans and their families by taking a #stand4heroes at bobwoodrufffoundation.org/stand4heroes.
Following on our wonderfully successful (and still ongoing) work with the Florida Humanities Council and WEDU in Tampa Bay, our next location in the Sunshine State will be Pensacola. With performances scheduled for November, 2015, we’re looking for veterans and military family members in the area who are interested in telling their stories of life and the military. Any era, any branch, any background – we want to hear what you have to say! To sign up, contact Lisa Powers – Lpowers @flahum.org, or call 917-822-8710. We look forward to working with you!
Are you a Lansing, MI area veteran or military family member? Would you like to tell your story to your community? Working with the Peppermint Creek Theatre Company, The Telling Project is working to create “Telling: Lansing, MI.” “Telling: Lansing, MI,” will perform in November, 2015 at the Peppermint Creek Theatre, and will be your opportunity to speak directly and in-person to your community about your experiences in and with the military. For information or to sign up, please contact The Telling Project: email@example.com. We look forward to working with you!
In a new and unique approach to our work, we are working in Palm Springs, CA to creat a performance that will specifically highlight the stories of female service members. Set to perform in November at the Indio Theater, “Telling: Palm Springs,” is actively seeking participants. If you or anyone you know lives in the area and might be interested in performing, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and sign-up. We look forward to working with you!
With the Florida Humanities Council and PBS affiliate WEDU, “Telling: Tampa Bay,” will be the first ‘Telling’ performance of the year. Six Tampa area veterans and one military spouse will perform in venues throughout the Tampa Bay area over the next month, talking openly about their experiences in uniform and their transitions back to civilian life. Link HERE to locations, dates, showtimes and information about the project.
It’s time to listen.
These are the final three performances of what has been a remarkable year. We’re working with our great old friends, Veteran Artist Program, and our new friends at Johns Hopkins Science University and CenterStage. This is a great cast and a great performance.

At 8pm on Veterans Day, November 11, 2014, “Telling: San Antonio,” filmed at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, will be broadcast by KLRN.

It will be a powerful television event.
We’ll be coming to Minneapolis/St. Paul December 10-13, 2014 to interview prospective performers for “Telling: Minnesota 2015,” a partnership between The Telling Project, The Guthrie Theater and the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
