Storytelling for Peace
What do the latest summer blockbuster movie, a captivating third grade teacher, a doctor with a gracious bedside manner, and a successful peace negotiator all have in common? They all help to build a better life, a better world through the power of storytelling. Whether to entertain, educate, heal, or resolve conflict, stories are the most fundamental way that we connect.
The Power of Storytelling
Established as a non-profit educational and cultural institution ISC produces over 300 hours of live performances, engages 65 world-class professional storytellers, touches thousands of lives each year and fosters storytelling programs across the global stage, fulfilling its vision to build a better life and a better world through the power of storytelling.
National Storytelling Festival
Many years ago, in a distant kingdom known as America, 60 people gathered in a tiny town in Tennessee to indulge in a simple, but nearly forgotten, tradition: storytelling. From those humble beginnings, a storytelling revival was born. Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in Jonesborough, the storytelling capital of the world, The International Storytelling Center continues to produce the oldest and most prestigious event in the world devoted exclusively to arts of storytelling; The National Storytelling Festival.
