The Moth

Monday, January 4, 2016 through Saturday, September 30, 2017

The Moth is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling, and a recipient of a 2012 John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation MacArthur Award for Creative & Effective Institutions (MACEI). Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of stories told live and without notes worldwide. Through its ongoing programs—The Moth Mainstage, The Moth StorySLAMs, The Moth Community & Education Programs, and Moth Corporate Programs—The Moth has presented more than 17,000 stories. Each show starts with a theme that the storytellers explore, often in unexpected ways. Each story is true and the shows, both the StorySLAM events and Mainstage events, create a connective, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.
