It is with great sadness that the Storytelling Toronto Board of Directors announces the passing of
Carol Farkas on October 29th, 2016


Carol came into my life through Storytelling. It was shortly after a life change that she was advised to take up the Art of Storytelling. She did so with great enthusiasm. She invited a group of us to meet at her home where we discussed ways of bringing the art of Storytelling to others. Carol arranged for us to tell at Providence Villa, Christie Gardens and others Seniors’ homes. 1001 Friday Nights of Storytelling was a popular venue where Carol delighted her listeners as she shared her stories. Her energy will be sadly missed.  — STT Board Member, Molly Sutkaitis

Carol was a proactive and passionate member of the Storytelling Toronto Board of Directors from 2012 until her last day. She sat on the Awards and Storytent committees, and devoted much time and effort to these projects.


Village of Storytellers is a project run out of Storytelling Toronto, a not-for-profit arts organization of volunteers. The project involves groups of residents meeting once a week over a period of time with professional storytellers to listen and share personal and traditional stories told aloud. Most participants move on to perform as storytellers at local events and the Toronto Storytelling Festival.
