2021 CONNECTED Conference & Festival

 Registration is closed for this event
The National Storytelling Conference is a great chance to see some fabulous performances, award-winning keynote speakers and participate in a variety of workshops over a four day period, conducted by the “cream-of-the-crop” of storyteller presenters. The vision of the conference is to bring together all the individuals, organizations, businesses and institutions who seek to advance their skills, knowledge and showcase their talent from across the world. It is also a great time to see old friends and meet new ones through our networking events, that will encourage sharing information, mentoring, long-lasting collaborations and friendships. You will meet individuals using storytelling in all of its forms and mediums at the National Storytelling Conference.

The theme for the 2021 Connected National Storytelling Conference is…

CONNECTED: ACROSS THE DIVIDE

Five days of storytelling aimed at building bridges with stories.

Storytelling has been shown to be a powerful tool to help bridge differences with compassion and empathy. Stories help us see the humanity in one another, understand motivations, and appreciate similarities. This July, we will be exploring all the ways that story and storytelling help us reach across the divides that separate us. We seek proposals that share the power of story to address our differences and celebrate our commonalities. Have you used story to address divides between cultures, races, ages, religions, abilities, political parties, or storytelling forms/styles? What about the divides within or between families, communities, or organizations? Can you speak to the divides created by this pandemic, including the distance between traditions of live performance and the demands and limitations of virtual delivery? Share your expertise in helping to reach across any divide – physical, emotional, psychological, or digital. We look forward to exploring these ideas with you.

For those who cannot attend all or part of the conference, NSN will be recording sessions. We are continuing to build a digital library of resources that will help storytellers learn and grow from their own homes, on their own schedules.
