About The Story Café @ Urban Solace:
The Story Café is a monthly meet up of storytellers in Bangalore which takes place on the first Thursday evening 7.30 pm to 9.00 pm every month. This is an invitation for all those who like to tell or listen to traditional or personal stories and meet with other storytellers and story lovers. The evening will have two parts - the first 45 minutes will be an open mic for anyone who would like to tell a story. The only rule – no longer than 10 minutes! In the second half a featured teller will tell stories for upto 30 minutes. Suitable for all ages15 years and above.
The Story Cafe is hosted by By the River, a storytelling initiative for adults in Bangalore.
The open mic can accommodate a maximum of 5 tellers– so please register by dropping a mail to [email protected] or call +91 98862 83739 if you want to share a story. If you just wish to listen just show up. We welcome contributions at the venue as this is a community led and shared event; the entire proceeds will be shared between the featured storyteller and the venue partner Urban Solace.
