The Federation of Asian Storytellers was set up by a group of experienced storytellers with a vision of promoting the art of storytelling in Asia. Through the work of the Federation, more opportunities could be created for tellers to perform, internationally and inter-culturally, by organising Festivals, performances and teller exchanges.
The inaugural FEAST Storytellers’ Conference will be held in Singapore on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 November 2018 in conjunction with the 398.2 Storytelling Festival 25 November 2018.
Apart from a keynote and workshops by Dr. Margaret Read MacDonald, the Conference will feature nine workshops by some of Asia’s leading storytelling practitioners, including Dr Wajuppa Tossa, Ariyo Faridh Zidni, Sheila Wee, Jeeva Raghunath, Alicia Dongjoo Bang and Ng Kok Keong, as well as Christine Carlton (Australia), Craig Jenkins (UK) and Giovanna Conforto (Italy).
The Conference will be an excellent opportunity to meet like-minded practitioners from the region, and for all those keen to perform and travel, it offers delegates the chance to meet (and even perform before) representatives from Asian storytelling festivals, including Bangalore, Bangkok, Chennai, Jakarta, Kuching, Penang, Seoul and Singapore.
The 398.2 Storytelling Festival, which takes place on the day after the conference, presents the best of Singapore’s thriving story community and many storytellers from across Asia and beyond, in a day-long celebration at the National Library.
