What we're about
With inspiration from 'This American Life' and 'The Moth', this meetup features true stories told live on a small stage without scripts, notes, props or accompaniment. Storytellers stand alone, under a spotlight, with only a microphone and a roomful of strangers. Each hour mixes humorous, heartbreaking, and poignant tales that captivate, surprise, and delight with their honesty, bravery, and humor. First used ‘Third Culture Kid’, 40 years ago in her research on North American children living in India. Originally referring to children of missionaries or state department officials, this term can now be extended to the children of corporate executives riding the wave of globalization, children of parents who teach in the International School community and sons and daughters of men and women in the military. While of course there have always been both children and adults who have lived ‘abroad’, it seems the numbers are increasing as international markets are opened and expanded.
