August 2020: Despite what some newspapers think, we have not resumed any in-person events.

This fall, we are experimenting with monthly Stories Aloud online, starting with a small number of our regular audience. Email badenstorytellers1@gmail.com (note the 1) if you are not already on our mailing list. Also check our FaceBook page for updates.

The Baden Storytellers’ Guild in Waterloo is dedicated to nurturing and sustaining the development of emerging and established storytellers. The Guild seeks to promote excellence in our art, deepen our understanding of Story, and develop in the general public an awareness of and appreciation for storytelling, both in daily life and as a performance art.

The Guild seeks to promote, support and contribute to the growth of storytellers and to ensure the continuing development of the art of storytelling as an integral aspect of Canadian culture.
