Storytelling is as old as time. It's how we share experiences, knowledge and memories. Non-profit organisation The Moth is dedicated to sharing personal stories and celebrating the art of telling them. The New York-based initiative hosts over 500 live open-mic events across the globe each year, with people — from notable literary and cultural personalities to your average Joe — getting up on stage to tell their stories.

In 2008, The Moth brought its communal open mic events Down Under and this year, on Tuesday, August 20, Sydney will hear some of the best stories of the city about animals — from ridiculous stories about road kill to warm and fuzzy anecdotes on man's best friend to thrilling tales of run-ins with scaly, furry or feathered creatures in the wild.

Brandishing their weapons of word and wit, the storytellers will compete for the top gong at the Giant Dwarf in Redfern. You'll hear five-minute stories on the animal kingdom that are both tightly crafted and masterfully told. Come for stories that inspire, provoke, sadden and enlighten, told by some of Sydney's best.

Or, if you consider yourself a wordsmith, you can drop your name in the bag to be selected at random, then grab the mic, hit the stage and tell your five-minute tale.

The Moth StorySLAM: Animals will take place at Giant Dwarf on Tuesday, August 20. Doors open at 7pm, with stories beginning at 7.30pm. Tickets for this event are available on Thursday, July 18 at 3pm and can be purchased here
