This partnership with the International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough, Tennessee sought to understand the power and role of storytelling in individual and community learning and development. How do communities craft and use stories to learn? How do individuals create personal stories that enhance their growth? Insights into questions such as these are revealed through extensive literature reviews and interviews with leading practitioners who use stories and storytelling in a variety of fields. Archivists and folklore leaders from the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian also worked with the project to share the work with the broader public. This project was funded by the Krispy Kreme Foundation.
