StoryArk Festival


Welcome to our online world! 
Join us for the StoryArk Festival on August 16 at 4:00 PM taking place digitally via Zoom. 
Initiated and produced by youth, the StoryArk Festival promises to be a hands on, engaging, multimedia experience – all from the comfort of your own home! 

The StoryArk Festival will:

-Showcase  the student podcasts, short films, poetry, short stories and visual arts created during StoryArk’s summer virtual podcast, film and creative writing camps

-Be emceed by student comedian Peyton Zignego, host of the podcast Covid Operation and a part of StoryArk Pre-Professional staff

-Feature the family band NUNNABOVE as recently seen on America’s Got Talent


The Festival is a free celebration of student storytelling in all of it’s diversity. StoryArk is a 501(c)3 organization and would be delighted by any donation you might wish to give in order to empower, uplift and amplify youth voice.

All who donate in any amount are invited to an afterparty immediately following the Festival. Listen to a set from student band NUNNABOVE, hang out with both the professional, pre-professional and student artists, and be a part of special giveaways of student art. We may not be able to offer food and beverage, but we can provide a good time.

The StoryArk Festival is supported by the St Croix Valley Foundation and sponsored by Kowalski’s Markets. Summer programming has been a collaboration through our Absent Narrative Project with Stillwater, South Washington County and Hastings school districts. StoryArk programming seeks to empower, uplift and amplify the voice of all students – especially those underrepresented and often missing from the mainstream narrative.

Please only donate after you register
