What is Oral Storytelling? 

The art of oral storytelling is an experience shared by teller, story and listener. A story that is told (not read) changes with each new telling, each new audience, each new teller, each new setting.  Storytelling happens in the moment. Both teller and listener are open to letting the story unfold and to discover both personal and universal truths.


Cultures around the world have used storytelling to teach values, to share history and to impart wisdom.
