On the Flip is a project of EmbraceRace, Good Talk Media, Valley Voices Story Slam, Amherst Media, and other partners in western Massachusetts that celebrates storytelling about race and identity. We’re working towards building a culture of live storytelling that features those whose perspectives rarely appear in the public square, and supporting them to tell the stories they want to tell, rather than the stories we think we want to hear. Those may be stories of racism and oppression, bias and hardship; they may also be stories of joy, family, friendship and community, resistance, resilience, and laugh-out-loud humor.
Our theme for this year’s event is “I See Color”, and features approximately eight storytellers in a non-competitive, community-building environment. Admission is free, though a donation of $10 or $20 is appreciated and will help cover the cost of producing this nonprofit event; 50% of the amount donated will benefit the Franklin County People’s Fund. Space is limited so reserve your ticket today!
