: WHY WE TELL :
CHESTER COUNTY STORYTELLERS! Aspire to serve and be in the position to offer schools and organizations in Chester County, Pennsylvania, educational-entertainment from qualified, professional storytellers. We are focused on becoming a welcomed addition to the enrichment and creativity of schools, festivals, and community events in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
In these times of conflict, bullying, peer pressure, dis-engagement, self-esteem and other social problems that affect our children and adults, we want to act as a catalyst for peace, change and human equality. We will tell stories of inspirational, motivating world folktales, true tales and current event stories. We also want to feature and bring to life as role models, the Heroes and Sheroe's in our community and from all world cultures who in the past, or present, are making a positive impact in the lives of others.
In trainings and workshops at our monthly meetings, we will be qualified to publicly present our roster of artists by August 2018.
It is at from that time on, we will offer a variety of high quality Storytellers with storytelling repertoire's intact, for schools and organizations throughout Chester County, PA. For a reasonable honorarium, the hiring of CCStory tellers will allow our educational and creative community to assist in supporting independent artists in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
We intend to create a data base of quality storytellers, a You Tube Channel and programs from extraordinary and engaging Storytellers from all genre's and cultures. We are reaching out to all nationalities to join us to tell stories. Our children must see themselves in our storytellers from all nations.
It is only when we can hear and truly listen to another point of view, with stories that teach compassion and connection, can we enrich, uplift and bring greater understanding and peaceful conditions to the world and in our community.
“The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.”
"There is no greater burden than carrying an untold story."
