An Evening of True Stories VI
October 9, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
After a long summer break we’re back with the 6th installment of ‘An evening of True Stories’.
Let’s get together for a magical evening full of enchanting true stories from our lives.
We believe every true story is an opportunity to learn something about others, ourselves and has the potential to make a difference to our understanding of the world around us.
Our goal is to meet in a prejudice and judgment free environment to share true stories that make us think, laugh, cry, hope, wonder, learn and care. Anyone who wants to share their story can do so for 5 – 7min.
Nobody is forced to tell a story, so feel free to come and just listen to others’ true stories.
Sounds interesting? Come join our 6th session! Bring friends if you want but above all, bring ears to listen, a mouth to tell and a heart to feel.
Q: What type of stories can I tell?
A: We want people to share real life stories about their lives – experiences trying new things, taking on challenges, stepping out from their comfort zone, hilarious faux pas, travel adventures and misadventures … as long as it is their own real story. This is NOT an event for debates, political speeches and religious sermons. We also do not tolerate offensive, hateful and objectifying talks.
Q: Does my story have to be in English?
A: Yes, because we want to hear stories from all over the world.
Q: Can I come and just listen to others’ stories?
A: Yes, definitely.
Q: What do I need to do if I want to share my story?
A: You can send a brief email to email@example.com together with a short description of your story or you can also just come on that evening and tell the host you would like to share your story.
Q: Can I tell my stories in the form of a poem/ song?
A: Yes! As long as you don’t read it from a paper.
Q: I have no experience in storytelling/ public speaking at all. What if people hate my story?
A: You don’t need to be a master storyteller. All skill levels are welcomed.
Q: My English is not good. What if people don’t understand me?
A: If you need help with your story, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: My story is not funny or interesting enough for people to listen to!
A: Our event is friendly, open, intimate and honest. This is not a stand-up comedy night where you are expected to tell jokes. Relax, take a deep breath and enjoy the empowering feeling of having a platform to share your stories with an empathetic and supportive audience.
