FEST Conference 2022 - Vilnius (Lithuania)

1-4 June 2022

FEST and SMK University of Applied Social Sciences have the pleasure to invite the international storytelling community to the annual FEST conference 2022 in Vilnius, Lithuania on June 1 – 4 2022. We invite storytellers from Europe and beyond to visit the vibrant and modern city of Vilnius and its world famous Old Town architecture. 

The past and present live in harmony in Vilnius. While its narrow streets are filled with stories about the legacy of the olden days, the modern part is driven by a start-up mind set and is filled with new ideas and projects exploring the combination of creativity, tech, IT and the arts. Thus, we invite everyone to discover the art of oral storytelling in a digitally enhanced environment. After all, much of the work has shifted to have an online presence, a move which can be seen in the whole arts and culture sector. 

Not sure what to expect? 
Take a look at the FEST conference 2021 in Svendborg, Denmark.
