Deaf StorySlam

Ex Fabula, Milwaukee Public Library and Deaf community members began the planning for Wisconsin’s First Ever Deaf StorySlam in 2019, as part of the Gathering Art, Stories and Place project. Since then, we’ve held a second slam and won the Associated Bank Trailblazer MANDI Award. Our workshops are led by Deaf storytelling coaches and all stories on stage are told by Deaf community members. At StorySlams, stories in ASL are interpreted into English and sometimes Spanish as well.
