We had a fine time celebrating storytelling at our annual all-day festival. Story Arts of Minnesota partnered with Normandale Community College  to entertain and educate storytellers and story listeners of all ages. We’re now gathering feedback from participants, so the 2019 festival will be even more awesome! To share your ideas for next year’s theme, suggest workshop topics, or recommend storytellers to perform, please email us at storyartsmn@gmail.com.

Selected photos from the festival are on SAM’s Facebook page.

Our Mission:

Story Arts of Minnesota exists to promote the art of storytelling and to develop and support storytellers.

We imagine a society in which storytellers are recognized for their ability to provide a relevant, inspiring and transformative service to individuals and the community through the art and craft of spoken narrative. We envision SAM as a leader in promoting storytelling as a performance art form as well as fostering its application within such areas as education, historical interpretation, health care, psychotherapy, spiritual direction, and organizational life. SAM helps storytellers develop professionally and work productively within and across these fields.
