What is it? A festival dedicated to teaching children from all communities about the dynamics of art and the power of storytelling. Last year, over 3,500 students took part in the storytelling festival. Look for that number to grow.

Why see it? A diverse group of storytellers, relating tales from Africa to the Trail of Tears, give their young audiences a new appreciation for the world around them. Donald Davis shares the stage May 24 with local poet Brian Penberthy and classical guitarist Joshua Fisher.

Who should go? Anyone who appreciates the spoken or written word, or young people interested in learning to be better storytellers.

PICCOLO SPOLETO • Prices, times, and locations vary • May 22-25 • (888) 374-2656
