About Us

GGS is a team of storytellers committed  to championing storytelling as part of Guelph's rich culture.

         To that end:

  • We support and celebrate each others'unique talents and passions.
  • We plan programs and events for adults that offer opportunties for experienced and would-be-tellers to participate.
  • We open our arms to a broader community of storytellers and supporters of storytelling to engage with us in our year-long, prescheduled events. (See guest tellers)
  • We commit to cultivate partnerships and work together and use our storytelling skills for good.

Here is the GGS 2018/19 organizing team: Rusty, Sya, Jenny, Beve and Susan - making plans for the year (Sept 2018). One agenda item was reorganizing in the light of Brian's announced sabbatical. Brian left large footprints to follow.
