What’s the Story? is an innovative group process workshop for artists who are wrestling with personal story in their work for the stage, the page.

Witness and Responsibility invites artists of all genres to interact with and create work based on catastrophic testimony. Working in tandem with scientists and social scientists, we believe that artistic response can have a measurable effect on individual and community healing from trauma, public awareness and legislative policy.


 I had the privilege of serving as International Creative Director for Kwibuka, the 20th commemoration of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.

Over the past eight or nine months, I had the rare opportunity to enter the world and story of the Rwandan people.

The 100 Days of Mourning ended on 3 July, and I’m starting to write about my experiences.
