Welcome to a new year of story!

Even in the coldest of Winters, we New Yorkers still come out whenever there is a story to share.

Already we have a Scandinavia House story hour for children (with Bill Gordh on Saturday, January 20th). The Five Boro Story Project’s Almost Home / Casi llegando a casa series reaches its finale on Saturday the 27th. Terri Mateer’s A Kind Shot claims the TBG Studio Theatre as its home court right through the end of February. A new workshop with Laura Simms and James Nave has been confirmed, but you will want to claim your spot ASAP. The long–running BadyHouse Storytelling Concert series will notch its fortieth performance on February 11th. And the African Folk Heritage Circle, Inc. has released its planned storytelling calendar for the next six months, with more dates on the way (as they are confirmed and details added, of course).

And you might say we’re just warming up... be sure to check the Calendar for further updates as they come in.

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 nycstorytelling@gmail.com. (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.
