Fundraising Superheroes Episode 3: The Storytelling Arts of Indiana and the Power of a Great Story

Founded in 1987 as Stories Incorporated, The Storytelling Arts of Indiana specializes in the wonderful art of oral storytelling. Oral storytelling is so entertaining but it is also an important tool for passing down history and knowledge. 

"When younger members of a family know their family stories, they have a much better sense of who they are, and if we don’t pass them down those stories get lost” says Ellen Munds, one of the three founders of the organization. "I’ve learned lots of history through stories that I did not learn in school”.

Ellen has been with the organization since the very beginning and she knows what it takes to be successful in this industry. It can be hard when you are first starting out but you need to keep going, something that Ellen learned when getting started. "There are people out there who want to help you, you just have to find them and take their advice. You know, learn and grow as you go along.
