Jos Duncan is on a mission of love.

The multimedia producer started her social enterprise, Love Now Media, last year to tell stories “that lean toward justice, wellness and equity.”

That includes 11 Days of Love Stories, a mini-festival featuring free storytelling events across the city with partners ranging from WHYY and the African American Museum of Philadelphia to Germantown coffeeshop Uncle Bobbie’s Coffee and Books and filmmaker Ava DuVernay’s ARRAY.

The series kicked off its second year on Monday with a reception at CultureWorks Greater Philadelphia and Tuesday with a storytelling workshop at Uncle Bobbie’s. The series’ theme: “Love, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

“The love storytelling workshops are not just for writers and storytellers,” Duncan wrote in a press release, “but for anyone looking to connect with the love as a value in building new relationships, healing, nurturing communities, advocating for justice, making a social impact and finding happiness amidst our world’s media climate which is often saturated with stories of chaos.”
