Friends of Storytelling Live!

Becoming a Friend of Storytelling Live!

During 2023, ISC will celebrate the 20th season of Storytelling Live!, the Center’s renowned Teller-in-Residence (TIR) series, a one-of-a-kind storytelling program for residents and visitors of Northeast Tennessee’s communities. Beginning in May, the Storytelling Live! series includes master storytellers from around the U.S. and abroad who spend week-long residencies in Jonesborough, TN. These professional tellers offer live storytelling performances and workshops at the Center, as well as a variety of special events like children’s concerts and holiday shows.
