OpenStoryTellers is a community arts charity supporting people with learning disabilities and autism. We help people to find their voice and use it. Stories are what make us human, they help us make sense of the world, make friends and take part in society.
We run projects, activities and day services to support people to develop and explore their creativity, become active citizens, to share their stories and to have their voices heard in society.
Our Storytelling Company say:
“We campaign to have our voices heard in society. We want people to change the way they think about people like us. We ask the audience questions and make them think. We want to show people that even though we have special needs, we are the same as those who don’t. We want to be the best storytellers in the world. We want to lift our performance up onto a cloud!”
