Story Gatherings | Nashville, Tennessee

Part instruction. Part challenge. All inspiration.

STORY is a two day conference designed by creatives, for creatives, who tell stories in a variety of industries. Part instruction, part inspiration, you’ll be challenged and stretched as a creative by innovative talks and unique performances. You’ll meet new friends and connect with leading creative practitioners. But even more, you’ll be challenged to become a better storyteller. It is our mission to inspire you–so that you can in turn–inspire those around you to change the world. We want to support the creative class as you work to create meaningful art.

What makes STORY unique in the world of conferences, is that STORY attendees have a natural bent towards impacting and influencing the cultures in which they live, work, and play. Our tribe is not just about telling stories for the sake of entertainment, but they understand that great stories are what change the world.
