The Vancouver Society of Storytelling is a member driven, Vancouver based charitable arts organization committed to developing, supporting and promoting the ancient and contemporary Art of Storytelling.

For nearly three decades, our members have entertained the public, young and old, with stories – from personal to traditional, and from ghostly to heart warming.

And for nearly three decades our members have found ways of making storytelling happen in Vancouver – from International Storytelling Festivals, to Epics, to Cric Crac Clubs, to individual performances, to being a presence at community events……..

Why? Because making storytelling happen is both our business and our passion.
