Storytelling Festival

Welcome to VWP’s Annual

Storytelling Festival!

Storytelling is inseparable from human life.  For generations, we have been telling story – be it around a fire to convey lessons for survival; at the dinner table to relay a funny happening from our day; in line at the grocery store to share a recent discovery; or snuggling up in the dark night to whisper a bedtime tale of wonder.  We all love stories.  Especially those conveyed with words that tug at our senses.  When we “listen” with our ears, eyes, nose and skin, we not only stir our imagination, but activate our body’s unconscious yearning to transform the pedantic and take flight into sensuous realms of magic, myth and hero.  

In the heart of winter, hundreds of people from Vashon and beyond gather around our proverbial fire to share in the ancient and powerful tradition of oral storytelling.
