The Moth StorySLAM
Friday, September 27, 2019 | 7:00PM - 10:00PM

The Moth StorySLAMs are open-mic storytelling competitions open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the night’s theme, INK, inspired by Henry Chalfant: Arts vs. Transit, 1977 - 1987, on view at the Bronx Museum from September 25, 2019 - March 8, 2020. 


Prepare a five-minute story involving things written or drawn in ink. Manifestos, diaries, contracts…dotted lines. Commitments! Tattoos you relish or regret. Documents that finally solve the mystery. Notes and letters you wish you take back. The pen is mightier than the sword? Ok, no pencils allowed.


To be selected to participate, arrive by 7pm and enter your name in The Moth “hat.” 


$15 tickets are available for purchase, and a limited amount of complimentary tickets for Bronx residents, at
