Storytelling in Education - April 23-26, 2018

This year the Festival, along with the Smoky Hill Educational Service Center, is sponsoring storytelling in schools with storyteller, Andy Offutt Irwin. Andy will be using storytelling to illustrate its effectiveness to entertain and enhance learning at the same time. Sessions at schools across north central and western Kansas will be offered this opportunity, so be sure and recommend to an administrator in your district that your local school participate.

Volunteer at the Festival

The Kansas Storytelling Festival could not happen year after year without its wonderful volunteers who are the heart of this event. Every volunteer, from the set-up crews to the clubs who provide delicious desserts at the concerts, is an asset and deeply appreciated. Volunteers annually provide hospitality, organizational skills, and manual labor to make the Festival weekend a welcoming celebration of stories.
If you would like to volunteer at the Festival, contact the festival coordinator, Glennys Doane, at 785.454.6648 or kansasstorytelling@gmail.com
