The Moth StorySLAM in Birmingham: Firsts

The Moth presents its first ever StorySLAM in Birmingham, an open-mic storytelling competition that is open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the night’s theme. Come tell a story, or just enjoy the show!

Prepare a five-minute story about your maiden voyage into uncharted territory. Wax on about your first: standing ovation, miserable failure, kiss, child, crisis of conscience, job, pet, toupee, trip overseas, exorcism, internet date, grandchild or fist fight. Grand openings, birth order, wild initiations, or milestones reached.

Artists with Disabilities

In this program for adults, specially trained docents present the Museum’s collection by means of verbal descriptions, three-dimensional tactile models based on original works of art, and sculpture. The experience may be enhanced by related music and/or art-making to provide multi-sensory access to the visual arts.

Experience and learn about works by three artists who turned their “disability” into extraordinary abilities in order to create their visions of beauty!

Space is limited; reservations are required. Please RSVP by 4:30 pm on Wednesday, July 11, 2018.

VIP tours are also available for school-age or adult groups. To reserve your spot or learn more about group tours, call 205.254.2964 or email tours@artsbma.org.
