International Storytelling Center (ISC) https://www.storytellingcenter.net/
The International Storytelling Center (ISC) is an educational and cultural institution dedicated to building a better world through the power of storytelling. Our mission is to inspire and empower people to tell their stories, listen to and honor the stories of others, and use storytelling to produce positive change. ISC has been at the forefront of America’s storytelling renaissance since 1973 when it hosted the first National Storytelling Festival in Tennessee’s oldest town, Jonesborough. Today, the Festival remains the world’s premiere storytelling event. Other mainstay programs include Storytelling Live, a 6-month live storytelling series, and Storytelling Online, ISC’s virtual series.

The International Storytelling Center is open and we look forward to welcoming you back! The safety and well-being of our guests and employees remain our top priority and continue to guide our decisions. During this transitional time, we will monitor the latest regulations and safety guidelines as released by state and regional health officials and agencies as well as expert consultants, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and will take appropriate actions as necessary. We appreciate your patience as we continue to monitor the evolving CDC Guidelines as they apply to our events.
