Timpanogos Storytelling Institute 2 Feb 2018

Timpanogos Storytelling Institute

We are best known for our annual storytelling festival the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday after Labor Day. Though it started out as a backyard event in a small town neighborhood in 1990, it is now the largest storytelling festival in the west and sets the standard for festivals across the nation. From that humble beginning we have grown steadily each year. In addition to the festival, we now support the annual Timpanogos Storytelling Conference and several storytelling contests. But it doesn’t stop there. We have expanded our influence to reachchildren in schools and youth across the country in ways we would have never imagined 29 years ago. 

 In January 2012, we formally incorporated as a nonprofit with 501(c)(3) status and established the Timpanogos Storytelling Institute.  Shortly afterward, we hired our first full-time employee. That March, we organized a board of directors. The board oversees 17 different committees comprised of hundreds of volunteers that give over 7,500 volunteer hours each year. It is incredible to think that this amazing group of Timpanogos Storytelling volunteers have put on the Festival and all of its related programs for the past 29 years.

 

The Timpanogos Storytelling Institute promotes language and literacy in schools. We bring storytelling experiences to our children locally and throughout Utah. The Storytelling in the Classroom outreach program, supported by the Utah State Board of Education’s Professional Outreach Program in the Schools (POPS) and amazing sponsors, makes it possible for students to experience exceptional educational and cultural events. We have been able to place national storytellers in many schools for once-in-a-lifetime educational programs that students would never otherwise experience. In addition, at our Timpanogos Storytelling Conference and through the National Youth Storytelling Showcase (NYSS), the next generation of storytellers are learning the art of storytelling.
