Many years ago, in a distant kingdom known as America, 60 people gathered in a tiny town in Tennessee to indulge in a simple, but nearly forgotten, tradition: storytelling. From those humble beginnings, a storytelling revival was born. Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in Jonesborough, the storytelling capital of the world, The International Storytelling Center continues to produce the oldest and most prestigious event in the world devoted exclusively to arts of storytelling; The National Storytelling Festival.
Established as a non-profit educational and cultural institution ISC produces over 300 hours of live performances, engages 65 world-class professional storytellers, touches thousands of lives each year and fosters storytelling programs across the global stage, fulfilling its vision to build a better life and a better world through the power of storytelling. This app includes the story of the Festival, but also includes toolkits, cross disciplinary collaborations, and multimedia resources to empower you to realize your potential as a storyteller!
