Storytelling Artists Stimulate Our Imaginations

Thank you to all who are responding to the question we, along with the International Storytelling Center, are asking at their upcoming festival, October 4-6, 2013, in Jonesborough, Tennessee. Early responses are already coming in for our question:

How might the art and power of storytelling contribute to global peace and collaboration in a troubled world?

Leon-Overbay“The performing Storytelling artist, by stimulating the imagination of the listener through their story in a collaborative manner, establishes a common ground which is the basis of community.”

    Storytelling transcends time; it unites by relating a past event, told at the present, with a hope for the future. It is how previous generations handed down their wisdom and experience to the next.
