Asociatia Tipe Tupa


The Onceuponatime Festival / Holnemvolt Székelyföldi Mesefesztivál aims to at the popularisation of folk tales, understanding and putting into practice the wisdom, experience and messages inherent in them for centuries. Tipe Tupa Association in Sepsiszentgyörgy, Hungary organises a yearly international storytelling festival around the Day of the Hungarian Folktale, September 30, the twelfth anniversary of the birth of Elek Benedek. We explore Folktales and stories for children and adults of all ages. We organise lectures, workshops, self-aware, self-directed group activities. The distribution of the myth of "fairy tales for children" and the practical use of fairy tales are important to us. Our goal is to showcase the multifaceted application of the tale (in psychiatry, prison, addiction, loss processing, education, family, etc.) and beyond, until the dawn ... , framing, the tale-listening trance, and the healing power of fairy tales!
