Story Slam Expression of Interest

To celebrate our 5 year anniversary, TCBN invites storytellers to sign up to share their original writing live onstage, representing the evolution of the community benefits movement in Toronto. To provide context and historical information, storytellers will be paired with an individual or organization from TCBN's network who from our perspective has made a significant contribution to the movement. Storytellers may chose to do their own research and select other influencer not part of the TCBN network.

Top storytellers will earn a prize of $500, $250 or $100. Every storyteller selected to participate will receive $50 honorarium. We welcome fresh talent and seasoned performers. Submit your Expression of Interest and we will follow up to confirm the details. Date and venue to be announced soon. Stay tuned.
