THe story Museum

The Story Museum celebrates stories in all forms and explores their enduring power to teach and delight. Founded in 2003, The Story Museum began by taking stories and storytellers into schools and communities. It has gradually been transforming a large, dilapidated building in the centre of Oxford into a most unusual museum, with the help of authors, artists, teachers and other cultural organisations and volunteers of all ages. Since opening its part-made museum in April 2014 over 110,000 people - mostly families, children and young people - have enjoyed the Museum and helped create and share stories of their own.

  THE RED ALACHIGH   The Red Alachigh was created in 2012 as a space for sacred sanctuary, ceremony, celebration, myth, music, crafts, arts and the exploration of women’s mysteries.  The inspiration for the tent came from a storytelling at the Wood Sisters Mystery School based on Anita Diamant’s novel “The Red Tent”.  The alachigh is a northern Iranian nomadic tent and this one was built by about 50 women with support from all quarters to raise the money for the canvas and other materials.  The tent has toured to many festivals offering meditation, quiet space, storytelling, crafts, music, dance, poetry and more. It is held by a council of women who are delighted to bring it to the first Oxford Storytelling Festival.
