The Guild is dedicated to promoting storytelling as a vibrant, contemporary art form, as well as a folk tradition, a way of celebrating life, and a tool for personal and social transformation.
Patchwork: A Storytelling Guild incorporated as a 501c3 non-profit organization in 1984 in response to the decline of storytelling in the oral tradition due, in part, to growing trends in multimedia and technology.
Patchwork remains dedicated to the survival of the art form and provides opportunities for training, performance, and education, along with encouragement and an open forum for storytellers and audiences to connect.
Patchwork is member supported.
Patchwork recognizes the dedication of its members to produce and make available high quality storytelling programs and instruction for all people, and for its diligence in valuing and promoting its artists.
