Nicholas Pawlowski M. Ed. founded The Story Table Foundation to promote mental and emotional wellbeing through interactive storytelling and makes space for great storytellers from around the world! Nicholas believes that children learn best when we talk with rather than at them. Consequently, back and forth conversations about the old stories foster healthy childhood development, as well as teach values like empathy, thankfulness, kindness and cooperation. Nicholas loves telling in-person but has also found that Zoom (when used creatively,) is a beautiful use of technology that is NOT television! While this is a children’s program, its message is not childish. This is achieved by telling stories that people of all ages can appreciate, and by welcoming the input and contributions of our elders.
As an approved fiscally sponsored program of United Charitable, we now have the administrative support to serve our communities more effectively and with greater impact.
To collaborate with and support communities and existing organizations who are focused on creating meaningful impact and transformation on people’s lives through the interactive storytelling experience. We may also offer scholarships and grants to further advance our mission to communities throughout the world.
The vision of The Story Table Foundation is to foster mental and emotional wellbeing by interacting in the oral storytelling tradition through improvisation, drawing and dance! Sessions are focused on elementary children but contain timeless lessons that people of all ages can appreciate. We also promote the strengthening of intercultural relations by making space for guest storytellers from around the world.
