Please note that this is the last year’s agenda. Click here for the Storytelling Festival 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 or 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.
The official dates of the festival are 29 October – 06 November 2016. Some of the events will also be held on October 22, 27 and 28.
The Storytelling Festival Amsterdam takes place in numerous locations throughout the city, including EYE Film Institute, Centrale Openbare Bibliotheek, Theater Oostblok, Podium Mozaiek, Klik Cafe and a couple of other venues.
For your convenience, we’ve gathered all the events with the stories told in English here. Some of them are even free. Check it out!
