The Nairobi’s vibrant storytelling community is gearing up for the fifth annual edition of The Moth event, a celebration of unforeseen narratives.

The eagerly awaited event is set for Saturday, November 4th, at the LRC Auditorium of the Catholic University of Eastern Africa, from 6 PM to 9 PM.

The Moth, a renowned non-profit dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling since 1997, has become a beacon of personal narratives worldwide, with over 60,000 true stories shared live and 100 million annual podcast downloads.

Four years ago, The Moth found its Kenyan home, offering storytelling workshops for gender equality and world health advocates that have left an indelible mark.

“It’s remarkable to witness how The Moth has become a driving force in Kenya’s storytelling arena. The warmth and diversity of the stories we’ve encountered have enriched lives in unimaginable ways. As we celebrate our fifth event, we are reminded of the remarkable journey we’ve embarked upon with storytellers and audiences alike,” Director Chloe Salmon shared her excitement.

These gatherings unite diverse individuals, painting vivid moments that transcend time and space.

These authentic, personal stories, sometimes intense, uproarious, or mysteriously captivating, always burst with vibrancy and life, changing hearts and minds.

The charismatic host will be Kenyan media visionary and equality activist Adelle Onyango. She’ll be joined by five accomplished activists, all Moth graduates, sharing stories around the theme, “Power and Possibility #DopeEra,” exploring courage, stepping into power, and realizing what’s possible. These authentic stories of rolling the dice for a lucky break and entering the arena for a fighting chance will inspire you to live in your #DopeEra.

Stories from the evening will be recorded for The Moth Radio Hour and The Moth Podcast. With over 500 expected guests, African storytellers community will be given precedence.

“The community of storytellers in Kenya is vibrant and thriving, and we are elated to host The Moth’s fifth event here to elevate stories that will continue to inspire conversation. Personal stories are powerful, and the stories in Kenya are nothing short of extraordinary. We eagerly anticipate continuing our mission of amplifying voices and forging connections through these deeply personal narratives,” the Executive Producer Sarah Austin Jenness commented.
