Looking for more storytelling around Ottawa and elsewhere? You’ve come to the right place.
Ottawa StoryTellers (OST) is your go-to hub for all things storytelling in the city. Holding dozens of events each year, including traditional and contemporary storytelling, workshops, theatre, and events for children and family. OST is a community-based organization of storytellers and listeners and always welcomes new members! Fans of (un)told might be interested in checking out the following events:
- Speaking Out: A variety of storytellers, local and visiting, each bringing their own unique show to the stage. December to June at the National Arts Centre.
- Story Swap: An open mic format, this is another opportunity for new and seasoned storytellers to share their stories, or for listeners to get a mixed bag of storytelling each night. The first Thursday of every month.
- Storytelling at the Tea Party: A cozy venue with intimate storytelling. The 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.
- Seasonal events at Billings Estate Historic Site and Bytown Museum, including an annual murder-mystery, old time tent show, and stories of early Ottawa. See the Ottawa StoryTellers website for details!
