  • Our First Storytelling Workshop (Concrete Heartbeat)

    We had our first storytelling workshop (Concrete Heartbeat) this week with Beowulf Jones (Risk!, Nerdist, MTV)! We are glad to have him teaching here! The first workshop was loaded with great information and storytelling concepts. If you are interested in storytelling, confidence or public speaking please come on over to A Million Drops next Thursday (May the 2nd) at 5pm! Thanks for the great turn out everyone who showed up (the picture obviously doesn’t do the turn out justice).

  • Thank You For A Successful Event And Performance!

    Thank you everyone who came out to see the Pop-Up BENEFIT PERFORMANCE by New York Actor & Playwright Robert Galinsky, directed by Jay O. Sanders this past Wednesday!

    Robert Galinsky, who is also the coach of our weekly Improv & Acting Workshop, used the event to raise funds to help us pay rent, so that we can continue to serve young adults experiencing homelessness. 100% of the proceeds went to A Million Drops. A Million Drops is not government funded and runs completely on donations. It is these acts of generosity and your support that help us keep going! Thank you!!!

    Also, a big thank you as well to all of those who worked behind the scenes to help setup and take down this event. This event was a team effort and it came together to help showcase an amazing show and performance!

    Please keep checking in regularly to see what future events A Million Drops may bring!

  • Homeless Realities Documentary

    We went on a small outing to view our very own Brian Sicurella portrayed in Jovrnalism’s 360 degree documentary, Homeless Realities. The documentary was a surprisngly intimate and beautiful piece of art spotlighting several people who are experiencing homeless in Los Angeles. The spotlighted participants were not only the focus of the documentary, they were also trained on new emerging technology while being involved in the creative side of the project!
