The International Storytelling Center (ISC) is dedicated to improving the lives of people around the world through the power of storytelling. ISC produces the three-day National Storytelling Festival which begins on the first Friday in October. ISC also produces a 26-week program known as Storytelling Live!—the International Storytelling Center’s renowned teller-in-residence (TIR) series which runs from May to October with daily concerts and workshops from world-class master storytellers that explore themes of diversity, unity, American and world cultures.

The Festival and Storytelling Live! encompass a wealth of cultures, traditions, and styles – a world of stories within one, historic town, known as the storytelling capital of the world. Storytelling Live! takes place in a state of the art theatre located beside a storytelling park and central to historic downtown. The National Storytelling Festival’s School Day takes place in large, circus-like tents, where audience members, schools, community groups, and visitors from across the world are treated to performances from internationally-known professional tellers.
The International Storytelling Center has become the flagship of a national movement that celebrates the rich history of American storytelling and the talebearers who share their stories. This picturesque place is where the storytelling revival continues to attract thousands year after year to share the time-honored tradition. They come for one purpose – to hear and tell stories! Listening to master storytellers and learning how to craft your own story, if used successfully, unlock the magic of difference, dialogue, and collaboration as we build new stories together. Stories empower and enrich us and help us realize the power of change.
