Our Mission

The Storytelling Center is an organization devoted to promoting excellence in storytelling, to increasing public awareness of storytelling as an art form, and to providing opportunities for all people who are interested in storytelling — opportunities to share resources, learn skills, meet storytellers, and explore stories of enduring meaning.

In pursuit of these goals, it engages in a range of activities including but not limited to:

• workshops on the various aspects of the art of storytelling;
• online networking (including our website);
• meetings at which members can tell stories and hear other tellers; and
• special projects such as storytelling festivals, study and research projects, concerts by master storytellers, or any similar project that the Board feels relates to its statement of purpose.
