Who Are We?
We are Alys Torrance and Lucy Lill. We are storytellers and producers and when we’re working together, we are Story Jam. We produce and perform in a storytelling show called Women Who Gave No F*cks.
It’s a stand-up story slam where storytellers bring women of myth, legend and history to the stage to battle it out. It’s a raucous celebration of the women in stories who have been over-looked, underwritten and buried. The audience vote for the character they want to crown winner of No F*cks, and write on the stage the names of the women who have inspired them to rip up the rules. Essentially, it’s a damn good night.
Why are we doing a crowd funder?
Good question. This autumn we’re doing a pilot tour of the show, and we’re very grateful to have ACE funding so we can pay everyone properly. But the other thing we want to do is to create an archive on our website. We want to interview our storytellers and audiences and create lots of little videos that we can upload and that you can find easily. We want a record of all the incredible women we've heard from, and about, up and down the country. It will act as a resource so that if anyone is looking for inspiration from stories about women who gave no f*cks they can come to the website and find some.
The £750 we are asking for is to pay our web designer to collate the videos and play around with our website so that it can host the videos in a format that’s easy to use and looks good. We’re very grateful for anything you can spare - if that's a price of a coffee, or a coffee and a bun, or more if you're feeling flush.
