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.

Theme of the Night: Give & Take

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

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 we're 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.
