Performing at the Home Club in Singapore!
300+ people crammed into Home Club to see Phil and Sarah perform tonight. And about 100 more people couldn’t fit in the club, so they stayed on the sidewalk outside and listened to the whole show blaring through speakers. It was unbelievable. So much love and gratitude to everyone who came and to the great folks at Word Forward for putting this together!

Performing and the Raffles Girls School in Singapore!
This show got added super last minute, but it was one of the most important school visits Sarah has ever had. The young women at Raffles showed such talent, charisma, and courage in the work that they shared with Phil and Sarah and each other. Sarah was quite literally moved to tears. And so many ladies stayed afterwards to give Phil and Sarah letters, gifts, and drawings. What a generous group of women. Thank you to everyone for being a part of such a special event.

Performing at the Blue Frog in Mumbai, India!
450 people packed into the Blue Frog to watch Sarah and Phil perform on International World Poetry Day! Sarah jokes around sometimes that she spends much of her life trying to find her way “back to India” and it is nights like this that are the reason why. This was one of the singularly most magical performances that Sarah has ever been a part of. So much love and thanks to all of the people who came out to see the show. What an honor it is to do this work.

Performing and teaching at the American School of Bombay in Mumbai, India!
Phil and Sarah had a great time working with the students of the American School of Bombay. Their second day at ASB was the “Festival of Nations” day which meant that all the students were dressed up in their national dress. For Sarah it felt like a flashback to her younger years at the United Nations International School on “UN Day”! Much thanks to all of the ASB students and faculty who made the visit such a treat.

Leading a storytelling workshop at the Acumen Fund’s Mumbai Office in Mumbai, India!
Sarah has been working with the Acumen for several years now, ever since she first performed at their *Spark event in New York City. When she found out that the Acumen Fund also had an office in Mumbai, she was happy to team up with them for a workshop on storytelling and presentation. Sarah and Phil spent the afternoon with the Acumen Mumbai team, and had a lot of fun with the group. Much thanks to Keya for hosting the workshop.

Speaking at the Habitat for Humanity 2013 Affiliate Conference in Atlanta, GA!
Sarah has been a longtime fan of the important work that Habitat for Humanity has done in communities around the world so it was an honor to be a keynote speaker at this year’s Affiliate Conference. The room was packed with Habitat volunteers, staff members, and community organizers from all over the world and it could not have been a more supportive space. Much thanks to the organizers for inviting Sarah to participate!
