Be a Storytelling Festival Volunteer

Do you want to lend a hand to support the Storytelling Festival? A celebration of this magnitude could not take place without the time and talents of countless volunteers. If you have an interest in promoting and perpetuating both storytelling and this fine Festival and have a few hours to spare, give us a call. Even if you are not a storyteller yourself, there are many things you can do to help us by volunteering your time before, during and after the Festival.

Without volunteers the Festival cannot take place. Volunteers are necessary throughout the year and the day of the Festival for a variety of tasks. Volunteers are essential for this event’s success!

No storytelling experience is necessary.

What the Festival contributes:

Showcasing storytelling for diverse audiences

A storyteller who tells using American Sign Language has been added to the roster of professional tellers at the culminating Festival. This service to the hearing impaired community also raises awareness of storytelling’s many faces.Bilingual Spanish storytelling has been an integral part of the Festival for many years. In 1998 the Festival opened a multilingual storytelling area. Stories in Spanish and English, French and English, African languages and English, American Sign Language and English were featured in this area. In the spring the City of Tampa Parks & Recreation Department sponsors a weekly Friday night concert. The national teller is highlighted during the concert on the Friday night before the Festival. Thus the Festival is promoted in a very active and entertaining way to music concert-goers who may not hear of the Festival otherwise.
