For us at Storytellers NSW, stories are told, rather than read aloud or shown on a screen

Storytelling is what happens when a story is told, face to face, eye to eye, mind to mind, heart to heart. The story is intimately known by the teller, spoken aloud, and shared, like a gift, with the audience. Known as the narrative oral tradition, storytelling is our first literacy.

We invite you to join us and experience this oldest and living art form.
