Nebraska StoryArts

Our dedicated group of Nebraska StoryArts volunteer board members, contracted tellers and workers fulfills our mission by organizing and implementing an array of storytelling events with a limited budget.

Our signature events include: the Moonshell Storytelling Festival; a summer workshop for adults and camp for boys & girls ages 9 to 18; Spooky Stories.
We conduct events and outreach programs for schools, libraries and community agencies.

Our mission is to preserve, perpetuate, and celebrate storytelling of all cultures and to nurture, sustain, and develop the storytelling community of tellers and listeners.​
We're a lively bunch. If you'd like to help us out, become a member or volunteer or sponsor an event! Be part of the story.
