The Telling Project

Dragon's Eye

Four years ago, Army veteran Tabitha Nichols stood on stage at the University of West Florida and talked openly about her military experience as part of “Telling: Pensacola.” It was a changing experience, she said.

“It’s scary. It feels like you’re undressing — exposing yourself, sharing your trauma. But it was so healing. I’m grateful for it.”

Six Pensacola-area veterans will take to the stage this weekend for two performances of “Telling: Pensacola."

The first performance will be held at the University of West Florida Center for Fine and Performing Arts this Saturday, Nov. 7 at 6:30 p.m., 11000 University Parkway.

The Telling Project is coming to Pensacola in November. For the project, the Florida Humanities Council is seeking active duty military, veterans, and their family members who would like to share their stories. The deadline to apply is this Friday, July 10.
