Five Boro Story Project

The Five Boro Story Project produces live community events that bring New Yorkers together through sharing true stories and art inspired by our neighborhoods. Our free, hyper-localized public programs create opportunities to connect to our neighborhoods and our neighbors through stories, song, poetry, dance, film, and discussion about the places where we live. The programs aim to strengthen community connections, preserve personal narratives, challenge negative perceptions of the outer boroughs and marginalized areas, resist erosion of local history and culture, and celebrate the diverse neighborhoods and people of NYC.
