TMI Project Podcast Launch Party

Join TMI Project and Radio Kingston for the launch of the TMI Project Podcast! Together, we’ll listen to the premiere episode featuring storyteller Verna Gillis and celebrate this exciting milestone!

Space is limited. To RSVP, visit: https://tmiproject.salsalabs.org/podcastlaunchparty/index.html

Over the past ten years, TMI Project has collected nearly 2,000 true stories. The TMI Project Podcast profiles the people who got on stage and shared the stories they were most afraid to tell. The stories behind the secrets. And what happened next.

ABOUT TMI PROJECT & THE PODCAST
The TMI Project Podcast features true stories by people from historically underrepresented populations often overlooked by mainstream media. Join co-hosts Eva Tenuto and Micah Blumenthal with some of our favorite storytellers as they step on stage and transform painful events from their past into powerful, inspiring, and often hilarious, monologues of resilience and survival.

Founded in 2010, TMI Project is a nonprofit transmedia organization teaching true storytelling workshops and creating inspiring live performances and bold digital content that focus on the “too much information” parts of a story, the parts typically left out because of shame or stigma. We believe that sharing radically candid, true personal narratives ignites human connection, challenges the status quo, and inspires both storytellers and listeners to take action for positive social change.

About Black Stories Matter

Black Stories Matter is TMI Project’s way of making an impact in addressing incidents of hate, bigotry and racial injustice in our local community while also participating as an organization in the national outcry of injustice. TMI Project’s mission with Black Stories Matter is to elevate the underrepresented stories of the Black experience in America – the full spectrum – the triumphs, humor, beauty and resilience.

Women’s March: Woodstock NY

On January 18, 2020, Woodstock, NY will raise its voice again to demand equality for all living beings. We will march and rally in solidarity with sister marches around the world. Over the past year, the environment has been ravaged, immigrants have been locked in cages or gone missing, the LGBTQ+ community has had rights taken away, First Nations Peoples are being violated in the name of oil, People of Color are killed with no accountability, and animals rights are destroyed. Mother Earth is struggling to survive under the weight of the current administration.

We must stand together to demand and defend our rights. Let your voice echo from the streets of big cities to the capital city, to right here in Woodstock, NY. Show the world that red, white and blue are colors of tolerance. Show this administration that the people in small towns join millions in cities to demonstrate that we want them out now!

We must stand together to demand and defend our rights. Let your voice echo from the streets of New York City to the capital city, to right here in Woodstock, NY. Show the world that red, white and blue are colors of tolerance. Show this administration that we want them out, now!

TMI Project, Rise Up Kingston, and RUPCO present THE HOUSING STORIES

The prevailing stories about housing insecurity and homelessness are rooted in misconceptions and stereotypes and often present those in poverty or in a housing crisis as “other.” Join TMI Project for The Housing Stories, a true storytelling performance featuring personal narratives from local community members who have experienced housing insecurity and homelessness that is designed to elicit compassion, human connection, and to spur audiences to take action for positive social change.

The performance will be followed by a Q & A with local community leaders.

This event will include a screening of Housing: A Human Right. This collaborative film between Rise Up Kingston and Survival Media Agency amplifies the stories of two Rise Up Members, Yolanda Knox and Freedom Walker. Their stories are emblematic of the struggle of black, brown, and low-income people to secure stable and healthy housing. The film debuted at the 2019 O+ Festival, and was sponsored by RUPCO, Radio Kingston, and Hudsy.

On-view in the Lobby:
Last Night For Dinner: This series originally exhibited at the idea garden in July 2019. Last Night For Dinner is a way for individuals invisible in society to have their voices heard through an art project. People currently experiencing housing insecurity created the work on placemats, a simple ornament most people take for granted. Presented by Rise Up Kingston and FreedomWalker Dickerson.

“We are in a time of deep discord and danger for many marginalized people. The sands are shifting for the LGBTQ community and there seems to be no stable ground. While I’ve often felt both angry and terrified about the actions of the current administration, my heart and my experience tell me that along with the necessity of direct political action, there is nothing like personal story to affirm common experience and build bridges. It is my hope that by being ruthlessly honest and vulnerable in telling my personal story I can make an impact. It is my goal to create a piece of theatre that reflects, supports, entertains and inspires members of the LGBTQ community while also being informative, enjoyable and accessible to the general population.” Zelda (aka Judith Z. Miller)

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Arts Mid-Hudson.
