Welcome to Zurich Storytellers
ZURICH STORYTELLERS is a non-profit organization producing storytelling events and workshops for our story loving community. Because we believe stories matter. They shape the way we perceive ourselves, our causes, what’s at stake and whether others will care.

ZST live events are an intimate high-energy evening of 5-minute stories by people who have a passion and the desire to share authentic true stories with their hometown crowd. The stage is open to everyone, but our (very cool) L200 event space has limited seating - reserve yours now.

  • THE PURPOSE
    Leveraging the power of storytelling to foster change through meaningful relationships. Ironically, in a world where everyone is digitally connected 24/7, alienation and isolation are endemic.
  • WHAT GOES DOWN?
    Our live event progamme varies but generally includes introducing ourselves with a warm up activity, a cameo by a Guest Storyteller and our main attraction, the StorySLAM.
  • WHAT’S A STORYSLAM?
    The ZST StorySLAM is an open-mic storytelling competition. Anyone with a true story to share on the night’s theme is welcome. All stories must be 5 minutes or less and true, as recalled by the storyteller.
