Do you love a good story?

Whether the stuff of legends, or of everyday experiences, of family history, or present in the tales that teach us how to survive, stories are everywhere.

The well told tale is a universal expression of our humanity because it captures our desire to make the world a more creative and inspirational place.

At Ottawa StoryTellers we’re telling stories all over town.

From our Speaking Out/Speaking In series at the 4th stage of the National Arts Centre, to Stories & Tea presenting tales told in an intimate café, to our annual Children’s Festival of storytelling, to our (un)told open mic and special features series to STORY SWAP, OST celebrates the art of the story.
