Project Description

Life of I – LIVE Storytelling evenings

LIFE OF I landed in NYC after traveling through Canada, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Syria and Iraq. We typically focus on bringing LIVE stories which we stumble across as a part and parcel of our daily lives. As humans, we try to make sense of our experiences, claim identities, interact with each other, and participate in cultural conversations through storytelling. These stories encourage us to view each other as compassionate human beings with a relatable story. As the Dalai Lama once said: “Compassion is the radicalism of our time.”

LIFE OF I is about flirting with the fine line between the comfortable and the uncomfortable through love, compassion and humor.

LIFE OF I in NYC is partnering with organizations, projects, and individuals who are working towards addressing the issues around diversity, bias and the ‘other’. This is a series of compassionate storytelling evenings that will help create a safe space to bring different diverse narratives together. It will provide an opportunity for the participants to develop storytelling, digital media, narrative development and communications skills.

The project is being developed by Chowk Labs (CL), and is supported by the Center for Social Innovation NYC. This initiative assists Chowk Labs (CL) in fulfilling its desire to learn, build and contribute to the local Chelsea community.
