Deborah Svec-Carstens: How I built community through tragedy

View descriptionShare

Deborah Svec-Carstens found herself by being vulnerable with a tight-knit community in a foreign country after an assault.

This story was first told during the Des Moines Storytellers Project's "Community" on Feb. 27, 2024 at Hoyt Sherman Place. 

The Des Moines Storytellers Project believes everyone has a story and everyone can tell it. 

Des Moines Storytellers Project events are filled with neighbors and notables who have a true, first-person story they’re willing to share in 8-10 minutes in front of a live audience.
