The Moth’s Pop-Up Porch will be stopping in Ann Arbor this week from September 27-October 1. This will be free and open to the public.
The Moth is a New York City based non-profit which is dedicated to storytelling.
The Pop-Up Porch is an homage to the organization’s origins. The founder, George Dawes Green, was inspired to recreate the feeling of the Georgia nights he spent telling stories on the porch with his friends.
At the Pop-Up Porch, guests are encouraged to gather around and listen to stories from the The Moth’s archives, learn about The Moth and receive one-on-one coaching from The Moth’s staff.
People are encouraged to be inspired by The Moth’s stories to partake in an exchange of their own stories with others.
On September 27 there will be an Open Mic-StorySLAM at The Blind Pig. The community can sign up to share a true and personal 5-minute story that fits the night’s theme, or they can watch the show. Tickets can be purchased online.
If you miss The Moth while it’s in Ann Arbor, it will be in Detroit from October 4-8.
The Pop Up Porch will be at Cadillac Square from 11 a.m.- 6 p.m. from October 4-6. On October 5, an open-Mic StorySLAM will be held at Marble Bar. The Pop-Up Porch will be at Dequindre Cut Greenway from October 7-8. from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
