An annual gathering for community, creativity, and the common good

The New Story Festival is an annual experiment in creating better lives for a better world - a weekend event embodying imagination, spirituality, social action, and playful connection. Gathering nationally-known speakers, high-profile musicians and artists, local leaders, and hundreds of attendees on the campus, of Huston-Tillotson University (an HBCU right in the heart of Austin, Texas) the New Story aims to amplify the good work already being done by activists, artists, religious communities, non-profits, and so many others in Central Texas and beyond.
