First Person Arts Festival seeks volunteers! See performances for free!

First Person Arts, Philadelphia’s premiere storytelling organization, is looking for Front of House volunteers to assist with its 18th Annual First Person Arts Festival program. Each shift will take place before the show, lasting about one hour in either a box office or ushering position. The Festival dedicates two weeks to the power of personal stories told through all genres of art and will take place at venues throughout the city from November 3rd - November 16. Most performances will take place in the evenings, with a few weekend afternoon shows. 

Volunteers can then see the show free of charge and will receive a complimentary ticket to use at a future monthly StorySlam. Volunteers are key to the success of the Festival! We truly appreciate your support, and love the chance to connect more deeply with story lovers across the city. If you have any questions, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Samantha, at
