Tonight (Fri 11/3) will be an absolutely first of it’s kind event. As best as we can tell this has never been done anywhere, ever.
The Nomad Story Slam – Election Edition will feature candidates running in contested elections for mayor, City Council, and School Committee telling stories. No campaigning, no electioneering, no notes – just get up and tell us a five minute true personal story.
Our hat’s are off to all those who signed up. While you may think that this would be like ducks to water, nothing could be further from the truth. For the candidates, this is a bit of a plunge into the unknown and we’re delighted that they’re ready for that plunge.
Tomorrow we’ll be celebrating the people behind the candidacies. In the midst of a political campaign it’s easy to forget that all of these candidates are just our neighbors – people, like us all, with stories to tell.
I can’t wait.
The event has been sold out for a week but we have been getting a few last minute cancellations. Email me at [email protected] and we’ll pass on any tickets if we get them.
