Storytelling Matters

The Live Art and the Power of Words

Einstein Thought Stories Matter

Storytellers and other narrative artists know firsthand about the value of storytelling.

But we are not the only ones who see it. Albert Einstein, the brilliant scientist, noticed many things about the world. One of them is this:

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”

Einstein believed that listening to fairy tales helps develop children’s minds. We believe it too. Research supports it. But it doesn’t just develop children’s minds. It develops community, passes on culture, and connects people. Live storytelling matters.

This blog will focus on the ways storytelling matters to people. It will also explore storytelling matters and issues. With musings and anecdotes, research, information, tips, and guest bloggers, we will dive into the world of storytelling – live storytelling – and explore the ways that storytelling matters. Stay tuned!
