FEST Survey: Storytelling in Europe today

November 13, 2017

As many of you already know, FEST has received a European grant for the development of the storyteller network. The grant is divided into strands, each with its own theme and development goals. Strand 3 is dedicated to the professional development of storytellers. To construct future education for a new generation of artists, we would like to know better how we became storytellers, how we work today and what would be relevant for education on a professional level. Therefore, we would like you to answer this survey and ask kindly to share it with your storytelling friends across Europe. The more answers we get, the better vision we will have on the European dimension of storytelling today. FILL OUT THE ONLINE SURVEY HERE Thank you for your help and cooperation!
