What the Festival contributes:

Providing meaningful compensation to tellers…

The Festival continues to assert the position of storytelling as a valid art form by providing meaningful compensation to storytellers, rather than asking them to volunteer their time or perform for less than their usual fee at the Festival. In addition to monetary compensation, these artists also receive promotion in pre- and post-event publicity (print, television and radio), a listing in the Festival program, and the opportunity to distribute brochures and business cards at a resource table at the Festival.
