Our 2022 Storytellers kickoff event theme of the night is “CLOSER THAN I EVER IMAGINED” and we’re stoked to hear what story that inspires you to tell. But if it doesn’t bring to mind a fateful encounter, or a scary moment or a plot twist short-listed for “How I Met Your Mother,” then surprise us with something else entirely. Because it’s your story that matters and deserves to be told and heard.
We’ll be experimenting with the format this year to keep things fresh and fun. Like more storytelling games, guest storytellers, contests, give-aways and of course more Story Slamming surprises. But as (un)conventional wisdom reminds every potential millionaire, "you can’t win if you don’t play."
So hit the RSVP button, answer a simple question and make plans to meetup with new and old friends for our 7th season (yay!) showcasing live on stage storytelling.
Coworking Lounge Tessinerplatz (pictured above) is an ideal space for our storytelling tribe and has made us a deal we couldn’t refuse that allows us to keep our event FREE to attend. Despite having to pay for service personnel, they will credit all drinks and snacks purchased until 20:00 against our fee. So we encourage you to bring your thirst and appetite when doors open at 18:30 along with a curiosity to hear true stories well told.
