WHYY and First Person Arts present a series of four story pitch events February 26, 27, 28 and March 1, in conjunction with the ongoing Center-funded project Commonspace. The pitch events offer community members a chance to visit the WHYY studios and share their personal stories about the issues that matter most to them, some of which WHYY will be including in upcoming Commonspace episodes. Pitches can be submitted online here.
For Commonspace, WHYY and First Person Arts are creating a series of public radio broadcasts, live arts experiences, and community events that contextualize and connect current events to daily life. This content forms the basis for a 24-month broadcast program, including a weekly podcast, a bi-monthly 30-minute radio segment, and a series of 40 short radio segments, to air weekly on WHYY-FM.
