Resolve Philly to host Philly Story Fest, a storytelling party

Philly Story: The best stories from our city on one stage

Philly Story Fest brings journalists and locals together for a night of art, entertainment, and storytelling by and for the people of Philadelphia. Think of it as a podcast, but live and on stage.

We are thrilled to partner with Back Pocket Media to bring a captivating live storytelling event featuring journalists, music, and community voices to Philadelphia.

Journalists from Al Día, Billy Penn, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Philly Mag, Spotlight PA, WHYY, and WURD go behind the scenes of their reporting, inviting readers into a world they’ve only observed from the outside. Community members also share unforgettable stories from their lives. The result is a captivating combination of music, art, and storytelling.

Sneak Peek Behind the Storyteller Curtain:
We're so excited that our very own, Dio Roberson, will be one of the Storytellers during the event. Dio brings immense value to the Resolve team through her work as Associate Editor of Community Narratives, and we are eagerly looking forward to her captivating the audience with her lived experiences and demonstrating the importance of interpreting people through relatable experiences and conditions.

To attend, please RSVP here. Early bird tickets are only $17!
