MISSION

Our mission is to help schools harness the power of storytelling as education, as a language development tool, as an art form and as a bridge between cultures.

EDUCATION

Storytelling is a "Trojan horse" for learning. You can tell stories, and people will listen; they won't even know that they're (supposed to be) learning!

LANGUAGE

Traditional storytelling has meaningful repetition. Because language acquisition begins with listening, storytelling is great for improving students' oracy.

ART

As an art form, storytelling speaks to the soul. It touches the heart and engages the imagination so that a deeper level of listening and meaning can emerge.

EXCHANGE

Every storyteller carries a part of his or her world, culture and history to share. We allow students to learn first-hand about other places in the world.
