Talk Story: Freedom Stories 630pm Free
Happy Independence Day! Come tell us your stories of personal liberation. That time you quit your job. That time you moved out of your parents house (either when you were 18 or when you were 32!). That time you first traveled alone. That time you broke up with your ex. Or maybe you've even got a story about America (freedom from America? Freedom from another country?) Whatever freedom means to you, we want to hear about it!
Once a month in downtown Oakland, join our Pan-Asian community and allies for a FREE storytelling open mic event. From music, poetry, dance, and everything in between, we welcome all forms of storytelling...come Talk Story with us!
Our format is open mic. Slots are up to 5 mins each - sign up at the event. You do not have to follow the theme! We will also feature live music and food/drink will be for sale. All are welcome!
The Octopus Literary Salon is ADA accessible and open to all ages.
***Hear a story, tell a story, live your story**
