“Pieces” is a collection of audio performances gathered from over 17 years of memoir writing workshops facilitated by Susan DiPronio who strives to create Art For Social Change.  It is an archive of the shared stories serving as a healing place for the storytellers and the communities from which they come. “Pieces” seeks to both educate and to inform.  Some of the earlier workshops were funded by The Leeway Foundation.

The “Audience/Listeners” will be able to hear/experience the tracks of the stories wearing earbuds. It is Free to experience. Donations will be accepted on behalf of “Project Safe” – Affinity based harm reduction for women, queer and trans people involved in the street economies of Philly. 


Cannonball, produced by Almanac Dance Circus Theatre, is the first and largest independent festival hub of the Philadelphia Fringe that presents risk-taking independent artists in back-to-back performances next to delicious lounge spaces, fostering creative collisions and community conversation.
