Centre for Stories
What would you do for love?
Join us on Valentine’s Day with a lover or a friend for an evening of stories centred around the theme of love. Whether it’s waiting at a bar for an hour to meet your next Tinder date or putting up with your partner’s questionable taste in music, love makes us do strange and wonderful things. So let’s celebrate love by listening to stories, and maybe sharing your own.
Hosted by Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa and featuring Sam Leung, Nadia Heisler, Dure Khan, and Kaya Ortiz.
