Bring Your Own
Founded in March 2012, Bring Your Own is a live storytelling series that takes place in unconventional spaces within the New Orleans community. Each month, eight storytellers have seven minutes to respond to a theme. Stories are told live, unscripted and true to the teller.
As a nomadic organization, events put previously unknown, underutilized and private spaces on the public map. Each event takes on the character of its environment; the success of the night is as much about the tone as it is about the stories that are told.
The best stories are produced by a team of local producers for on-air and online distribution. BYO is broadcast on All Things New Orleans, and as a biweekly podcast on wwno.org
Bring Your Own is a production of Laine Kaplan-Levenson and Computer Moon Productions.
