Today the Chattanooga Times Free Press announced that The International Storytelling Center and Pass It Down will be partnering to build a digital platform for the National Storytelling Festival. The platform will allow people from all over the world to participate in the festival, bringing storytellers from all walks of life together for a virtual storytelling event.
“I’ve been longing for a platform that ties into that ancient oral tradition of storytelling but can use modern technology as a mechanism and tool to enable us to connect,” said Kiran Sirah, the executive director of the International Storytelling Center.
Pass It Down built its brand on the sharing of memories through storytelling. Its component for the event, passitdown.com/festival, went live before the weekend and coincides with the startup’s public beta phase.”
