Hear the World, Heal the World

Urban Confessional: A Free Listening Project

Location: Both

1924 Raymond Avenue
Los Angeles, CA, 90007


Join us on Saturday, May 14th as we celebrate 10 years of Free Listening!

Since 2012, Urban Confessional: A Free Listening Project has been hearing the world to heal the world. From Los Angeles to Pakistan, Nigeria to Rio de Janeiro, and everywhere in between, volunteers have been holding Free Listening signs and offering a safe, compassionate space where people can be heard.

With musical performances by The Pierces, Rotana and Femmedy Trio, and spoken word performances by Arielle Estoria and Samuel Charles. Plus, a special word from Benjamin Mathes, founder of Urban Confessional and Crash Acting Studio.

We’ll be celebrating in-person at Crash Acting Studio in Los Angeles, and streaming the event virtually for anyone across the globe!

This is a fundraising event. 100% of all ticket sales proceeds will go towards helping Urban Confessional expand its mission of changing the world through the power of compassionate, non-judgmental listening. With your help Urban Confessional will be able to continue creating multilingual downloadable training materials and content, collaborating with like-minded organizations, partnering with new media channels, reaching larger audiences, and organizing live events around the world that will bring communities together and help spread the message and practice of non-judgmental compassionate listening. Your support means everything. 

Urban Confessional is a movement dedicated to changing the world through the power of compassionate non-judgmental listening, believing everyone deserves to be heard, seen, and understood.
