HOW THE IDEA STARTED
„In October 2015, I created an informal storytelling event called True Stories in Bratislava. The event was meant to bring English speaking expats and locals together to share true stories in a safe and supportive environment. The main concept behind Humans of New York or the Moth Storyslam is using stories to connect people. I wanted to bring something similar to Bratislava and at the same time to create a platform to give people a voice,“ says Hon Chong, one of the main organizors of this event.
„Together with my co-organizer Nikolas Haugeneder, we want to bring live storytelling to adult audience. We want grown ups to experience the magic of stories again, something most people have long forgotten. We would also like to bring experienced storytellers from all over the world to Bratislava and at the same time to give new storytellers the platform to sharpen their skills.“
