Lesley alumna Audrey Grubb works for a storytelling nonprofit This is My Brave, an organization whose mission is to end the stigma around mental illness through live storytelling. As an organization, they have produced over 80 shows across the country. Last year they piloted a college edition of their shows where 10 college students (including students from Lesley) were cast and traveled to different college campuses to share their stories of living with a mental illness through creative expression.
Audrey is now the producer for the college program in Boston, which is currently accepting auditions for a new cast. We’re seeking college students interested in sharing their stories of living with mental illness and/or substance use disorder through creative expression.
Ten students will be selected to perform poetry, original music, personal essay, dance and even comedy in a virtual performance this fall on select Boston campuses
To apply, record a video of your 5-minute audition piece and email it no later than July 31 to Audrey Grubb, firstname.lastname@example.org.
