Storytelling Gatherings


Until further notice, Durham Storytellers will continue to gather together virtually on Zoom to tell and listen to stories on the third Thursday of each month from 7 pm to 9 pm. Using the CONTACT page, leave your information and let us know that you want to attend a Zoom storytelling gathering.


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


Recently, we have had continuous Zoom storytelling gatherings throughout the entire year and will continue this practice until further notice.


Our gatherings normally occur from September to June each year at Northview Community Centre in Oshawa. In July, Durham Storytellers usually have our Annual General Meeting. In August, Durham Storytellers normally take a hiatus. Under other circumstances, there are no Storytelling Gatherings during the months of July and August.
