Carolina Archive of Storytelling, CAST, was created by 6 friends who love Columbia and the stories that live here. CAST wants to collect, preserve, and showcase amazing stories you otherwise wouldn’t get to hear.
Carolina Archive of Storytelling is a 501(c)(3) educational & cultural nonprofit operated out of a communal house in Cottontown, Columbia and remotely from Shenzhen, China
Our vision is to see Columbia connected through stories – preserved, told, and heard.
Carolina Archive of Storytelling’s (CAST) mission is to create an inclusive storytelling environment for the people of Columbia. Through telling stories in multiple artistic disciplines, CAST hopes to make permanent the histories of the people who live here and, by doing so, foster connection among the residents of our city. CAST’s goal is to empower individuals to effectively share their stories and to charge both storytellers and listeners to gain a sense of collectivity and carry it throughout the city we call home.
