NITTACHOWA, Maison du Conte et des Arts Oraux


At the beginning of the 70’s, France went through a regain of interest for the practice of storytelling.

Nowadays, this live art is settling and finding its spaces of expression.

Nowadays, artists are creating and giving a modern vision of who the storyteller is in our society.

By their creations, their relation to the fields of human sciences, social studies and pedagogy, they became mandatory to our country’s cultural landscape.

Nowadays, many organizations are getting involved, working on a daily basis on promoting and developing the art of storytelling.

Nittachowa is one of them.

Nittachowa is inviting you for a journey, on the paths of tradition and modernity, on the crossroads of imagination and reality.

Attached to oral literature and its sharing, to personalized educational support of the artists, to editing and broadcasting, Nittachowa creates, develop and offers specific and original tools, for the good of storytelling and all those who live by it and for it.

Always aware of the evolution of this art and its social responsibilities, Nittachowa, through its engagement in action, plays a determinant role in its promotion and recognition.
