The Georgia Mountain Storytelling Festival showcases the art of storytelling with an emphasis on both traditional and contemporary stories. Festival events include two days of outstanding storytelling performances; workshops for students and visitors to learn storytelling, speaking, and performance skills such as how to connect with audiences through humor and how to find your own voice as a speaker; special programming for children; and much more. Each year, the festival brings five nationally known, award-winning storytellers to north Georgia.
The recordings of the stories and presentations can be accessed online for 30 days after the festival, so teachers will have time to work them into their lesson plans at their convenience. With a festival ticket, you and your class can view as many of the events as you like! Your students will benefit from attending, whether you show them one session or many.
