Storytelling Gatherings


Durham Storytellers have our storytelling gatherings as hybrid events. We gather in-person at Faith United Church (1778 Nash Rd., Courtice, Ontario) on the third Thursday of each month from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm AND virtually on Zoom simultaneously to tell and listen to stories. (Use the CONTACT page, leave your information, and let us know that you want to attend a storytelling gathering.)


(Note: attend up to three storytelling gatherings at no cost; then we request that you become a Member of Durham Storytellers).

Our gatherings normally occur from September to June each year. In July, Durham Storytellers usually have our Annual General Meeting. In August, Durham Storytellers normally take a hiatus.
