So Say We All is collaborating with three groups of seniors at High Tech High Chula Vista on their final projects to design, engineer, and host a reading series in the South Bay, which will consist of three different nights throughout March, April and May.

The themes range from high school stories (struggles, relationships, trouble, etc), unexpected moments, and first times, and we hope for both readers and audience alike to be able to connect through their own unique stories.

Mesa College VAMP: Borders

So Say We All is proud to partner with San Diego Mesa College to present their first VAMP showcase: Borders.

Please join us for a night of storytelling at Mesa College. The selected students spend nearly a month undergoing an intensive critique and coaching process. Their stories are brave and vulnerable portrayals of borders. Life is full of borders: emotional, political, geographic, sexual, cultural, family.

The students participating in this showcases were selected from a large field of student submissions, and then spent a month working intensively with faculty, So Say We All teaching artists, and their co-performers to bring their stories to the stage. They work so hard, and have such amazing stories to tell.
