What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in the Artform of Storytelling! We are an organization that has continued to teach, celebrate, and explore the art and tradition of oral storytelling.
Over the years (since 1979) many hundreds of people have taken workshops at Storytelling Toronto, and many thousands of have come to the annual Toronto Storytelling Festival to enjoy stories told by local, national, and international storytellers. From experienced, seasoned elders to young tellers experimenting with the nature of spoken narrative, Storytelling Toronto is a creative centre for story-lovers who share a passion for and a vision of storytelling as an transformative art in contemporary life.
Storytelling Toronto continues to run the annual festival and courses for adults. It also produces a weekly StoryTent at The Stop Farmer’s Market at Artscape Wychwood Barns, cabaret series StoryFusion, a resource library, and regular e-newsletters for a community that includes well over a thousand storytellers, story-listeners, teachers, librarians, theatre artists, writers, parents, and others.
