Mỹ Việt Story Slam
The Mỹ Việt Story Slam is our signature virtual event hosted by Vietnamese Boat People each year. The event provides a platform and an opportunity for storytellers to share their perspective and personal stories around a specific theme. Storytellers have an allotted amount of time to share their stories using their preferred medium and format such as monologues, theatrical performances, music, art, or poetry.
Each year, we do an open call for submissions to invite people from all over to submit their stories for the event. A small number is selected based on effectiveness of how the story is told, relevancy to the theme, creativity and originality. Selected Storytellers are featured in the live event and receive a cash prize and gifts from our event sponsors.
