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 Featured Shows for 2016-2017 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.
