WHAT'S YOUR READ is Barkada Circle's storytelling jam session where nonprofits tell stories to a live audience about the impact of their mission. This is your opportunity to share your story with your peers in a safe and supportive setting. You can present a rough narrative that's in the works, ideas on new campaign messaging or unedited videos.

You get the most benefit by coming unprepared with an unfinished story because the immediate feedback you get from the audience is what will help take your new material to the next level.
Feel free to do a live reading, performance or other creative presentation. Just check with us early to make sure we have the right technical setup.

Whether you're telling your story or giving your read on someone's story, it will be a great way to discover and connect our causes in the community.
