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 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.
