Guelph Guild of Storytellers

GGS is a team of storytellers committed to championing all forms of storytelling as part of Guelph's rich culture. through events, promotion, advocacy, and education.

To that end:

  • We support and celebrate each other's unique talents and passions.
  • We plan programs and events for adults that offer opportunities for experienced and would-be-tellers to participate.
  • We open our arms to a broader community of storytellers and supporters of storytelling to engage with us in our year-long, prescheduled events. (See guest tellers)
  • We commit to cultivating partnerships, working together, and using our storytelling skills for good.
  • We strive to adapt to the virtual world and maximize our potential. (e.g., mirror live-time events to Zoom, post on our designated YouTube channel.) 

Here is the GGS 2018/19 organizing team: Rusty, Sya, Jenny, Beve, and Susan - making plans for the year (Sept 2018). ( Missing is an active member, Brian, on sabbatical in 2018.)
