Event Description

Sharing the Fire Storytelling Conference

April 1-3, 2016 • Amherst, MA

Join us at the UMASS Hotel & Conference Center in Amherst, MA on April 1-3, 2016 for Sharing the Fire – Storytelling in a Changing World. We will explore the unique role that stories and the craft of storytelling can serve in a world where issues of gender, technology, environment, and social justice are causing everyday folk to reexamine ideas and values.

Sharing the Fire (STF) – the Northeast Storytelling Conference – is the place to come to experience the best tellers in the Northeast. The general public is invited to storytelling concerts on Friday and Saturday evenings. For storytellers and those interested in learning how to tell stories, the weekend of workshops provides unmatched professional and personal development opportunities.
