They say December is the season of giving--buying presents, donating to charity, making time to catch up with friends and family before the start of a new year--but lets be honest, its also really the time for taking things for ourselves: indulging at parties & dinners, hoping for the right kinds of presents, and going on holidays.
This December Story Slam Singapore is looking for stories about giving and sharing with others, taking what's rightfully yours, or both.
Do you have a story about giving back to your family/society/community/a stranger who deserved it/or maybe even a stranger who didn't deserve it? Maybe you have a story about self care, standing up for yourself, demanding what you deserve, or even a story of what happens when you give into temptation. Or maybe you have a story about giving as well as taking, maybe its a story about a compromise you had to make, finding balance between helping others and caring for yourself, a time you realised you could not give any more of yourself and had to find balance, a story about the time you realised you had to stop being selfish, or maybe a story about the time you learnt the importance of sometimes being a selfish asshole. THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
Story Slam Singapore hosts monthly live story telling events, where only TRUE stories are shared. For everyone who has a tale and for everyone who wants to listen. Everyone has a story, what’s yours?
To tell a story, your story must fulfill three rules:
1. It must be a True Story
2. It must be about 8-ish mins long (sorry, keeping it short to keep stories powerful and punchy)
3. It must fit the theme of the night.
Story Slam Singapore is looking for story tellers! To lock down a slot for the night, email your short summary to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Door charge: $5 [It's FREE if you tell a story!]
