SLAVA UKRAINI! An Evening of (Bold) Stories to Support Ukrainian Refugees

In the spirit of solidarity, please join us Sunday, May 1, 7-9 pm, at the Earl Wynn Theatre of the Carrboro ArtsCenter for a special fundraiser for Ukrainian refugees. We will come together to hear award-winning personal narrative storytellers tell their own stories (in person and via video) of hope and resilience, and of seeing light in the darkness.

All proceeds from this event will be given to Razom for Ukraine, a gold level non-profit providing much-needed medical supplies as well as assisting with evacuations for Ukrainian refugees.


– General Admission ($25); VIP Level ($40+).

– Tickets available at door (if not sold out).

– Doors open at 6:30 pm

– Stories start at 7:00 pm


There will be Ukrainian snacks and art for sale at intermission and after the show, as well as a raffle with a one of a kind, hand-made piece of art by local artist Dierdre Shipman.


If you would like to attend but money is an issue, please reach out; some people may be buying tickets that cannot attend, and we will pay it forward.


This event is presented by Grit: True Stories that Matter, and is co-produced by Sharon Eisner and Sean Wellington. Grit is a storytelling organization dedicated to helping people craft and tell better, more engaging, more relatable and more memorable stories – that matter.
