What the Festival contributes:

Reaching at risk students …

There are lots of smiling faces at the TAMPA-HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY STORYTELLING FESTIVAL. They’re young, old, and in-between. Family remembrances, old tales, and new adventures are shared and stored in memory to be brought out another day for new sharing. Youth storytellers bask in the limelight as their talents are recognized. Parents beam proudly on their prodigy. Families talk about ideas, insights and shared experiences. New skills for communicating and personal growth evolve and families strengthen their relationships and gain new respect for one another as they realize the joy of our common humanity.
