Job Details


Are you fighting for liberation through your work or personal practices?? Would sharing your story advance your liberation work? If so, apply for Stories for Freedom, a TMI Project true storytelling workshop series that will culminate in a live performance.

In a world inundated with fake news, lies, and stereotypical narratives, radically true stories have never been more important. Stories for Freedom will invite ten storytellers, who have been cultivating practices of liberation within their work and lives, to join a TMI Project True Storytelling workshop where they will create and perform true, well-crafted stories of love, resistance and growth in their lives; stories that can be used to further their work and serve as an oral history and exist as a blueprint for progress for generations to come.

By crafting radically true stories, Stories for Freedom will amplify the voices of activists, artivists, changemakers, and everyday unsung heroes, to inspire identification and belonging in audience members, and challenge all of us to take bold action in the disruption of systemic oppression.

We will select 10 storytellers to join the program and will partner with organizations and individuals alike to further amplify and support the work of reclaiming and healing our lineages, one story at a time.

10 chosen applicants will recieve:
🧑🏽‍🏫 Guidance from trained facilitators
✍🏻 Collaborative editing services
🎤 Performance direction
💵 A $500 stipend
🎥 A recording of your story that can further your work for years to come.

All people will be considered, regardless of race, religion, sexuality, gender identity, or national origin. We encourage people from the BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities to apply. We will have a Spanish-speaking workshop leader and encourage Spanish speakers to apply.
