What we’re about
The best way to get to know someone is to listen to their stories. Everyone has a story even if they think they don’t, and up in the hills of Lisbon, once a month, a random, eclectic, curious group of people gather to listen to these first-person stories told in an intimate setting.
While it is sort of like The Moth—we do want first-person stories that are short in length—we give you a few extra minutes (stories should be 7-10 min) and there is no competition or scoring. You should expect a friendly and welcoming audience sipping red wine or herbal tea while they share in the vulnerable moments of life. We usually have 10 storytellers. There is also an intermission which offers everyone a chance to socialize.
We welcome everyone. Listeners. Storytellers. And people who have never told a story on stage but have an itch to try. Please join us.

- Storytelling Night—"LOVE"Fábrica Braço de Prata, Lisboa
Our theme for February is a tradition and one of our absolute favorites: "Love" ❤️
Give us the whole range: your sappy, tumultuous, complex, sweet, funny, tragic, and magical love stories. Unrequited love. Soulmate love. Familial love. Eros. Agape. Philia.
Maybe it is about that time your ex showed up when you really needed it and now you two are married. Or when you swiped right on Tinder and then fell in love at first sight—only s/he, unfortunately, did not. Or about your pet parrot that you have raised since he was in the egg and whose love you have felt more than from any other being in your life.
Please come just to listen or get on stage, be vulnerable, and share with us, a diverse group of welcoming and open people who are curious about each others' lives. Stories will last from 7 to 10 minutes. Expect ten stories plus an intermission.
We will hold our event at Fábrica Braço de Prata, an enormous multi-roomed centro cultural in Marvila that hosts everything from salsa bands to intimate piano concerts to philosophical comedy. To accommodate everyone, we will be in the outdoor tent right inside the gate to Fábrica Braço de Prata. The tent and venue has ample space, and there are concerts and other events going on inside after the show to explore.
Storytelling Lisboa is a completely free event run by volunteers. We welcome everyone to get on stage! Absolutely no experience is necessary.
We only ask that stories be true and personal and that they are performed as opposed to read—and they should be stories instead of philosophical musings, motivational speeches, or stand-up routines.
The content is completely at the discretion of the storyteller as long as it is related in the monthly theme and respectful to the diversity and experiences of all humans.
Interested in sharing a story? We give spots on a first come, first serve basis. Please fill out our form here: https://forms.gle/kkGhEM47BLF4WRkg9
For any questions or concerns, reach out to us by DM on our instagram @storytellinglisboa! Or email storytellinglisboa at gmail dot com.
Bring some cash to throw into our donation jar! We will always be free and want everyone to be able to attend, but your funds help sustain the increasing effort and volunteers needed to put on the event.

- Storytelling em Português — "SEXO"Fábrica Braço de Prata, Lisbon

Traz-nos histórias sobre a tua mãe entrar no quarto quando estavas muito bem acompanhad@, sobre um sonho erótico que se veio a concretizar inesperadamente, sobre a one-night-stand que virou teu companheiro ou aquela orgia à qual foste acidentalmente - NOT! 😂
