July 25-28, 2018 All Day
National Storytelling Network 2018 National Storytelling Summit
Theme: Communities, Conflicts, and Transformational Stories
Storytellers, as well as listeners, can be altered by stories. The exchanges are neither one sided nor hierarchical, they are reciprocal. Through ripple effects – both large and small – communities and conversations within the communities can begin to change. It isn’t a matter of answers; sometimes the best thing we get from a story is a new perspective or even a question.
This is the place to –
- Present projects and workshops that highlight the art and use of storytelling within our communities to effect change.
- Demonstrate the use of storytelling to resolve conflict.
- Hear stories that change the way we experience a community.
Each year NSN strives to bring together storytellers from every corner of the world to participate in an annual conference with a wide variety of workshops, education sessions, performances, and networking opportunities. We want this year’s conference to be better than ever, but we can’t do it without YOU! From attendees to sponsors to speakers and performers we need new and familiar faces to get involved and help make the 2018 National Storytelling Summit the best event yet. We’ll release more information as it becomes available so check back often for updates on keynote speakers, registration, housing, and events associated with the 2018 National Storytelling Summit.
