Organizations across the United States are helping to spread the word from our community partner, Vietnamese Boat People!!
Share your story on the 4th Annual Mỹ Việt Story Slam!
This year’s theme is Ba, Mẹ ơi (roughly, “Dear Dad and Mom”)
It’s hard to imagine our parents having lives before us. Have you thought about how much you actually know, or want to know, about their pasts and what shaped them into who they are today? This year, season 6 of the Vietnamese Boat People podcast showcases narratives of individuals uncovering the lives that their parents once lived. And if you’re a PARENT who has something you’ve always wanted to share with your kids, we invite you to submit as well!
Five Storytellers will be selected and featured in a live event and on the podcast, plus each will receive $300 and a bag of swag from their sponsors!
They want to feature YOUR story. For the first time, the Mỹ Việt Story Slam is open to storytellers from ALL OVER THE WORLD, not just the U.S.
