About the Event
Join us on September 19th and connect with the good people from the Groundfloor community at their beautiful, welcoming space in the Mission. Not a member of Groundfloor? No problem. Just sign up here, then show up, keep an open heart and mind, and practice being your-really-great-just-as-you-are-self with others.
Connect before the event and get updates on Facebook and Instagram or add yourself to our mailing list (bottom of this page). Because our voices matter, our story is a gift, and connection is the key to unlock the best in us.
Q: I'm already a member of Groundfloor, do I need to sign up here?
A: Nope. Just grab a spot within the Groundfloor app.
Q: If I go, do I have to share something?
A: Nope. You can participate to whatever degree you'd like.
Q: Is there a theme?
A: There is no set theme. People tell the story they're inspired to tell. We encourage storytellers to be vulnerable rather than performative, and emphasize the importance of your authentic voice.
Q: What's the format?
A: Your 5-minute story can be read, memorized, improvised, sung, danced, or moved.
Q: Do I have to sign up to share ahead of time?
A: It's not necessary but people who sign up ahead of time do get priority in the line-up.
Q: Can I share if this is my first time?
A: Often people will attend once before sharing in order to get a feeling for the event, but that's not always the case. Watch this 3-minute video to get a feel: https://www.connectwithstory.com/aboutstory?pgid=lfe702rq-fb06f687-4cca-4cfa-973a-920339e2ae60 Or read this blog post: https://www.connectwithstory.com/post/presence-respect-perspective
Q: Is there a time limit?
A: Yes. To ensure everyone has a chance to share, we ask you to keep your story to 5 minutes.
Q: What is Groundfloor?
A: Groundfloor is an inclusive community of people from all walks of life looking to build meaningful relationships. Learn more https://groundfloorclub.com/about/
