    Unfortunately the FEST 2020 Conference in Bursa was cancelled because of the COVID-19 outbreak and the national measures taken to fight this virus. FEST would like to thank SEIBA International Storytelling Center for all the hard work they put in the preparation of the 2020 conference. We can't meet in person but that doesn't mean we can't meet at all, that is why FEST decided to take our yearly international conference for oral storytelling online. The 2020 FEST VIRTUAL CONFERENCE will take place 24 -26 June 2020
