Welcome to the Storytelling Arts Blog!

Welcome to the Storytelling Arts Blog. This space will be used to share news of our programs, information for teachers and other educational professionals, and discussions with our affiliated artists.

Senior research scientist turned award-winning author and storyteller Kendall Haven calls storytelling "an information delivery system powerhouse evolutionarily hardwired into human brains." Haven says: "Storytelling Arts programs have consistently had significant, positive impacts at all grade levels."

We hope you'll find this blog useful as a forum to discuss storytelling and its use as an educational tool.
