Hello August! Can you believe it? Only one month until our first Ex Fabula Story Slam of Season Seven. That’s right, this year we’ve added a seventh StorySlam in September. Lucky Number 7 indeed!

On July 26, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, was signed into law. The law was created to establish a clear and comprehensive prohibition of discrimination the basis of disability. On July 27, 2015, Ex Fabula in collaboration with Broadscope Disability Services presents Easy Access StorySlam: A celebration and exploration of the Americans with Disabilities Act through personal stories.

Fourth of July is upon us, already. This weekend, friends and families alike pack the cars full of tents, s’mores, bug spray and firecrackers and head to the great outdoors for a weekend of holiday camping.

So this weekend, we’re taking a trip back with two entertaining tales of adventures in camping. Ex Fabula wishes everyone a safe and Happy Independence Day.

It’s officially summer in Wisconsin! This means sunbathing at Bradford Beach, music under the stars, barbecues, fireworks, and of course, Summerfest! Yes, Ex Fabula regular Story Slams are on hiatus, but we’ve still got a few community collaborations coming your way and we’re here on WUWM each weekend at 3:40 p.m.

Ex Fabula: Father's Day

Fathers. They call us silly nicknames, they teach us how to ride a bike, how to check our oil (even better, how to change our oil). They listen to our first heartache and advise us on our next heartthrob. They take us fishing, lose their temper, use colorful language and throw dance parties in the kitchen. This week, we’re celebrating fathers and Father’s Day with the humorous tales of two Dads.

It was an amazing sixth season for Ex Fabula - with more community collaborations, more community support and more sold out Story Slams than ever before. With the end of the season comes the end of several terms for Ex Fabula Board Members, including Board of Directors Secretary, Andrea Hoeschen, Esq.

Well Milwaukee, you did it again. You turned out in droves to help celebrate Ex Fabula's sixth season and to listen to new, personal stories from the storytellers you voted “All Stars.”

There was a lot of laughter and even a few tears as each storyteller got down to the “Nitty Gritty.” The stories were as diverse as the storytellers themselves and all we can do is sit back and say thank you.

It’s hard to believe that the end of Season 6 is already here. We’ve had an amazing season of Ex Fabula, many sold out Story Slams, a host of awesome Secret Fabula events and the opportunity to collaborate with some fantastic local businesses and organizations in our quest to build a stronger community through storytelling.
