FEST Forum #1: Storytelling during Corona

Thursday the 30th of April 2020

Without doubt, the current Corona crisis is affecting us all. Some lost all work, others are exploring new opportunities and taking new initiatives. Some of us might have a hard time, others might see it as an interesting time. What connects us is that we all have to re-invent ourselves, just like everybody else in Europe and the rest of the world.

We feel the need to talk to colleagues all over the world, to share feelings and experiences, to find mental support or even to get inspired on how to take on this new challenge. That is why FEST started to host online forums. The first one was scheduled on April 30th 2020. 73 Oral storytellers from all over the world joined us to share and discuss their experience of being a performing artist in time of COVID-19 Lockdown.
