International Storytelling Festival Amsterdam 2017

Can you still remember the pre-Internet era with less technology and longer conversations? When we actually visited concerts instead of watching those recorded and shared on Youtube? When we weren’t listening to audiobooks, but to real people reading and telling stories?

The Storytelling Festival Amsterdam will take you back in time to experience it again! Come and listen to beautiful tales, recitals and legends narrated by talented storytellers from all over the world.

Some of the stories will be amusing, the others might be sad, but none of them will fail to touch your heart.
