What better time to clean out your mental, emotional or actual closet than the first month of a new year? We want to hear all your stories of release – of control, habits, love, hate or all of the above! The First Person Arts January ‘Bucket Slam’ theme is…Letting Go. So let go of that fear, and tell us your story!

NEW this season.  Send the first line of your story to stories@firstpersonarts.org for a chance to be guaranteed 1 of the first 4 spots on the lineup to tell your story live.  That first line should catch our attention, draw us in and connect your story to the theme of the night.

If selected, you will receive free admission to the Slam and early entry into the venue to save seats for your friends and family.  If you’re not selected, we’ll put your name into the bucket. You could still be selected to share your story of the burn!

Send the first line of your story to stories@firstpersonarts.org by November 15th  or come to the event and put your name in the bucket for the chance to tell your true, first person story on stage at World Cafe Live on December 13 (Doors at 6pm for an 8pm Show).  Get your tickets at https://worldcafelive.com/event/first-person-arts-storyslam-4

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 January 24 (Doors at 6pm for an 8pm Show). For January, the theme is ‘Letting Go’ – 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.
