About Us

Story Nights is a non-profit international storytelling community and live event series dedicated to inspiring, healing, transforming and connecting people from all walks of life through the art of storytelling. Story Nights is a project under the International Society for Arts and Culture (ISAC), a civil association registered and headquatered in Bratislava, Slovakia.

We currently produce two well received live storytelling events; ‘True Stories’ and ‘Bedtime stories for Adults’.

From our humble beginning in October 2015 in Bratislava, our storytelling group has been growing steadily and we now organize storytelling events in Bratislava, Vienna, Budapest, Bari, Chandigarh, Manila and Cebu! This has been a really exciting journey for us. We hope to meet you in person at one of our live events near where you live soon.

Our Story (or how we started)

Back in Autumn 2015, I organized what was supposed to be a one off storytelling evening for my students in my English course to practice public speaking.
That first event named “An Evening of True Stories” was inspired by popular live storytelling events like the Moth in New York City and the radio show, “This American Life”.
Due to positive feedback from participants and guests, further “True Stories” events were organized in Bratislava.

Storytelling events have a special way of bringing people together and creating connections. I met some of the most amazing people through my events and a few of them took the initiatives to bring the True Stories concept to their own cities. Within a short period of time, “True Stories” events started popping up in other cities all over the world! If you live or travel to one of the cities where we organize our storytelling events, do come and join us for an evening of storytelling in its most raw and intimate form.

With gratitude,
