Do tell!

There is plenty of story to be had this Spring, as you’ll find on our Calendar page... The Spring storytelling series for families at Scandinavia House will finish on May 12th (we will soon have the Central Park schedule for this summer, so do check back). A new home concert series, Come Over for Coffee, will kick off on April 29th in Jackson Heights, Queens (with performers to be announced). Thelma R. Thomas will have a special house concert earlier on the same day. Provincetown Playhouse in Greenwich Village will wrap up its Spring series with Portuguese storyteller Ana Sofia Paiva. And two of our fave series for adults, the BadyHouse Storytelling Concert and Out by Ten have shows coming up in May. Speaking of which, Out by Ten has a new home: the Cooper Square showroom of Noho Sound & Stereo, an virtual heaven for fans of audiophile stereo components.

Plus, the Five Boro Story Project will be in Brooklyn (Bushwick, to be exact) on Sunday April 29th as part of the Mayday Festival of Resistance. If you're in the immediate area, be sure to visit their "Bushwick Love Letter" booth!

Remember that you can always send Daniel Meyer your latest performance and event dates for inclusion on our Calendar page; you can reach him at (Be sure to follow us on Twitter, too!)

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.
