Story SLAM with Norah Dooley of massmouth

ALMA's Contemporary Art Gallery
$5 donation

Learn to tell your own story. Workshop leader Norah Dooley of massmouth will lead participants in the timeless art of storytelling. The evening combines entertainment and learning to tell one’s own story so others will listen.  Our topic will be objects that have special meaning in our lives. Bring your own object – an ordinary household item or a special heirloom.

The workshop begins with a short concert of stories by winners of previous massmouth story slams. Then all participants join in one-on-one exercises designed to turn personal experiences into a story and, if you wish, into a performance. Finally names are drawn at random for a story slam competition with everyone a wniner.

Norah Dooley is “an entrancing storyteller” (Boston Globe), teacher/coach and co-founder of massmouth and project director of StoriesLive. She is also an author and has created spoken word CDs.


The museum is located in the heart of Watertown Square.
