March Storytelling Events!

3 Mar


Tuesday, March 13 @ The Ale House (7:30 – 9:30 pm)
Hosted by Mike DeSocio
Theme: “In Transit”

Everyone loves to travel. But sometimes, the journey ends up being more interesting than the destination. Tell us a story about getting there. What went wrong? Something almost always does. How did you figure it out? Who did you meet? And what did you learn along the way? Come share your tumultuous travel experience. Whether you walked, ran, rode, drove, swam or flew, we want to hear about.


Monday, March 19 The Olde English Pub (7:30 – 9:30 pm)
Hosted by Gregor Wynnyczuk
Theme: “Lies & Liars”

Nobody likes to be lied to. It doesn’t feel good. But it happens. Sometimes with the best intentions, sometimes with the worst. Of course, we generally think of ourselves as truthful and transparent, but telling the truth is often difficult. And lies are so much easier. They make things better. Until they don’t. Come share your story of lying or being lied to…

This Place Event at the UAlbany Art Museum

Tuesday, March 27 (5:00 – 7:00 pm)
Gregor Wynnyczuk will host a special open mic event as part of This Place – an exhibition featuring photographs from twelve internationally renowned artists who spent portions of three years in Israel and the West Bank to capture unfiltered insights on everyday life. More information on the show (and directions) can be found here.

Theme: “Finding My Place”

Places can resonate with us. We may feel we belong in some places, and don’t in others. But ‘place’ is not just a geographic concept – it’s also a societal construct. We often serve a role or function that is determined by others. Sometimes this can be useful and make our lives easier. Sometimes this can be dangerous and make our lives difficult.

Consider a story about finding your place – whether it be physically, geographically, or in relation to others.

Listening is an act of Love

Front Parlor is a place to hear and tell stories around a designated theme. We generally have 8-12 storytellers, five minutes each, telling true stories. No notes. It’s just like The Moth radio hour, except it’s local storytellers in front of the most loving and supportive audiences anywhere.
