Storytelling as an art form is both ancient and contemporary. It may well have been humankind’s earliest art form, along with poetry. Since we first invented language, people have told stories to teach, to inspire to pass on culture, and to build connections with one another. By telling traditional folk tales, original fables, or heartfelt personal stories, storytellers illuminate aspects of life that we share and help us connect at the most fundamental level.
