"Storytelling is among the most ancient of arts. To hear a story is to be touched in heart and mind, in body and spirit. The storyteller gives the tale; the listener receives it, responding out of his or her own being. The story comes alive. It flourishes and grows."



Celebrating the life and legacy of Jan Andrews


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 Season to Stories & Tea presenting tales told in an intimate café, to our annual Children’s Storytelling Event, to our Story Swap, OST celebrates the art of the story.
