Close Calls – October StorySlam
First Person Arts renowned ‘Bucket Slam’ format returns – throw your hat into the ring for the chance to tell your true, first-person story at World Cafe Live on October 25 (Doors at 6pm for an 8pm Show). For October, the theme is ‘Close Calls’ – stories of the almost spectacular, the not quite a disaster, the one that got away, or the moment you dodged.
When a stranger gets on stage you never quite know where it might go. Host Chris Lundy makes sure the laughs happen between the heartfelt, the absurd, and hilarious stories that are a part of this guaranteed good night out.
Volunteer on the night, or storytellers can get to the top of our ‘bucket list’ by messaging marketing@FirstPersonArts.org with the headline of their story!
If your name gets picked from the bucket you get 5 minutes on stage to share your truth in a safe space for all. Panel favorites get $100 dollars in gift cards and a slot in the GrandSlam event next year.
