Hostelling International Boston and massmouth are pleased to announce that they will be hosting a very special storytelling event at Hostelling International Boston. “Lost in Translation” will showcase stories of cultural exploration and communication as participants share some of their most challenging travel moments. Modeled after poetry slams, massmouth’s story slams invite storytellers—from experienced performers to first-timers—to share a real-life story in five minutes. Ten individuals are chosen at random to tell their story about their travels. The audience will vote for their favorite stories and winners are awarded with a prizes provided by massmouth and from Hostelling International Boston.
