They say "child's play" is easy. But how about epic adventures, sibling rivalries, or games that spin out of control? Or a task you thought would be "child's play," and oh, so wasn't? Come tell your own best 5-minute true story of playful pandemonium at our "Child's Play" story slam at CIC ArtWeek. The audience choice winner will go home with a $100 gift card from local restaurant Glass House!
CIC, a world-renowned startup incubator in Kendall Square, is hosting the slam in collaboration with Massmouth as part of ArtWeek Boston. Doors open at 5pm for FREE food and drink and an hour to mingle. The story slam starts at 6pm. We will also be celebrating local independent fiction publication, The Cantabrigian Magazine, with a reading from the next issue. It'll be a great mash-up of business and tech innovators, storytellers, and literary mavens – in short, an evening of people who play.
CIC Cambridge has generously underwritten the event so that the public can attend for free. Space is limited, though, so be sure to RSVP to claim your seat!
To access the 5th floor event space, please bring a valid ID to show to first-floor security and tell them you are attending the show.
What is a story slam?
A story slam is a storytelling event where audience members become the tellers! Anyone can throw their name in the hat for the chance to tell a 5-minute true story from their lives on the evening's theme: Child's Play. A team of five volunteer judges will evaluate the stories and the night's top-scorer wins a prize.
