Welcome to OpenStoryTellers

We are a community group open to everyone who has a story to share. We use both personal and traditional stories to develop social inclusion. Our mission is to enrich the lives of people with learning and communication difficulties, and those who live and work with them, through the use of narrative and story; building relationships, sharing experiences, developing a sense of identity and helping people find their place in society.

We are a limited company, registered charity and social enterprise. We are managed by a board of trustees and run with learning disabled staff and trustees.


Openstorytellers and The Devil's Violin

March 2015
We are crowdfunding to raise funds for our group to experience an exclusive workshop with professional storytellers, The Devil’s Violin.

The Devil’s Violin combines the traditional medium of storytelling with live music, creating unique performances to keep storytelling fresh and interesting. It will be an exciting experience for our group, allowing them to gain new skills and boost their confidence.

A percentage of the funding for the workshop has already been provided by the Arts Council of England and Wales, however we must find a way to cover the remaining costs. £350 will allow us to cover the remaining cost of the workshop as well as additional costs in enabling the group to attend.
