Storytelling and Deeper Understanding

In March 2014 the Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation-USA launched a special web series that explores the ways in which storytelling can be used to promote world peace.

The multimedia project will feature a variety of performances and perspectives collected from master storytellers participating in ISC’s teller in residence program.


Sharing oral traditions from all over the world, they will illustrate how the art of storytelling promotes diversity and deepens understanding across cultures in the quest for peace across the globe.

The project promotes the spirit of Ubuntu, a philosophy of human kindness espoused by Desmond Tutu. If you would like to share your story on the Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation-USA website, feel free to contact Rebecca Popham, Managing Editor at  Rebecca enthusiastically tells us that “We welcome your stories, pictures, and videos that show the spirit of Ubuntu in action!”
