First Person Arts Festival
A Vital Part of Philadelphia's Cultural Landscape
It is the only festival of-its-kind in the world dedicated to presenting art based on real-life stories by well-known and emerging artists working across disciplines. Festival programming connects audiences of all backgrounds around the commonality and wonderful nuances within the human experience. We have presented authors, poets, activists, actors, comedians/satirists, stand-up storytellers, theatre artists, monologists, musicians, and podcasters to Philadelphia audiences for 18 years.
