The Bay Area Storytelling Festival: Good News & Bad News

The Good News: We just finished our 25th year of Festivals, bringing you nationally celebrated performers whose stories lead you far from home, through laughter and tears, and face to face with yourself.

The Bad News: We will not have a Festival in 2011. A long time sponsor withdrew their support, and increased production costs and bad weather on Festival weekend meant the Festival lost money we could ill afford.

  The Good News: We will be spending 2011 renewing our energy, focus and financing, so that we can begin the next 25 years in 2012. But we have a lot of work to do, and we need your help! For more details or to make a donation in support of the Bay Area Storytelling Festival go to http://www.bayareastorytelling.org/appeal.html .

We'll also keep you updated about wonderful storytelling and other exciting events during our year of renewal " yes, that means expanded school outreach performances in the spring* and a gala fund-raising concert in early summer.
