What does my membership support?

Your membership provides matching funds that Ex Fabula needs in order to get grants for outreach projects like the Fellowship, Equal Access, Puente Project, etc. These efforts help more Milwaukeeans to meaningfully connect through personal stories – but don’t take it from us! As one participant said, “Breaching barriers between strangers in your community can be hard. Ex Fabula offers a safe, meaningful way to do that.”

How long is my membership valid?

Memberships are valid for 12 months. Then you renew, so you don’t miss out!

How do I use my StorySlam tickets?

  • Members are issued credit that they can use to reserve advance tickets to regular StorySlams. Then, check in at Will Call at least 15 minutes before show time.
  • Or, you can show up and check in with Will Call to use your member credit, provided that there is still room.
  • Either way, consider arriving early, as seating is General Admission.

What’s Secret Fabula?

These special events are held about 3 times per year and are free for members. These intimate, experiential events take you behind the scenes of unique Milwaukee locations such as Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge, the Pitch Project artist gallery and studio, Brass Rooster and the Hen House hat shops, Sugar Bee Farm, Shaker’s Cigar Bar, and Turner Hall.

Can I bring guests to events?

We hope you do! Non-members can purchase advance tickets online or at the door for StorySlams, Workshops, and Fundraisers, pending availability. You can also buy a Duo membership with “Guest” listed as the second member. Additionally, at Levels 2 and higher, members receive limited numbers of guest tickets to Secret Fabula events; see the chart above.

Do your events have age restrictions?

It varies. Some events are held in bars (21+), while other venues like Turner Hall allow minors. In either case, stories may contain adult content, so please use your discretion.

Are these benefits subject to change?

Wow, are you a lawyer? Good question. As it happens, yes, they are subject to change.
