Home

We are Singapore’s first monthly live story telling event that aims to give people a platform to share their lived experiences with others in an open and inclusive environment.

Each month, we set a theme, and put out a call for interested storytellers to share their real-life experiences with others based on that month’s theme.

We believe that everyone has a story to tell, so the format of our story slams encourages the open participation of people with no prior experience. Our eventual hope is that you will come and tell your story, then continue exploring that raw and authentic side of yourself through the power of the spoken art form.

Events

Story Slam Singapore hosts monthly live story telling events where only TRUE stories are shared. For everyone to has a tale and for everyone who wants to listen. Everyone has a story, what’s yours?

Theme of the Night: Pride

-----------------

You can take pride in your work. You can pride yourself on your character. But sometimes, as the old saying goes, "Pride Comes Before The Fall."

This session, we'd like to hear tales about the time you took pride in something. It could be your work, a creative endeavour, or maybe how you managed to achieve your goals. It could be about LGBTQIA pride and how you came to celebrate, and continue to celebrate, your identity. Alternatively, you could even tell us about the time pride got in your way and stopped you in your tracks. Or even that time when your hubris caused your downfall (We're looking at you, Lucifier!)


Whatever it is, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
