Stichting Vertellen / Dutch Storytelling Foundation


Stichting Vertellen is an organisation from and for the oral storytellers. We want to stimulate the use and raise awareness about oral storytelling in the Netherlands.

It's a joy and an experience to listen to a good story and it is magic to tell one yourself.

On our website you can find all our latest news and activities, find information on the education of oral storytelling or find information on where to find stories. Stichting Vertellen is the initiator of a taskforce about World Storytelling Day in the Netherlands.
