Our Mission

Georgia Mountain Storytelling Festival, Inc. is organized exclusively for educational and charitable purposes, including, for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or the corresponding section of any future federal tax code, and, more specifically, to provide meaningful opportunities for an underserved audience to engage with the voices of Appalachia through hearing stories and attending workshops that will enable them to develop a cultural intelligence through the arts of listening and speaking.


This is amazing and one of the most rewarding experiences of my life this far. I hope this happens every year!
