  • FEST CONFERENCE 2015 – KEA ISLAND (Greece)

    “Once upon a time there was a small island that was called Kea. From a distance, it looked just like any other island. But it held a secret! This secret was only known to the nymphs, the good ladies and the fairies that lived at the water sources. I heard someone say that whoever drinks from the sources where the nymphs live, sorrow will not touch him again. They also say that whoever learns the secret from the good ladies becomes a child again and that whoever steals the spells from the fairies becomes wise forever!”

    FEST CONFERENCE 2014 – VÄSTERBOTTEN (Sweden)

This makes for good contact between the inhabitants and the municipality and, once the interest and value of oral storytelling had been established, the municipality saw its value to the region and became a willing funding partner. Skellefteå then adopted the title of Storytelling City, rather than to allow the title to go to the neighbouring city of Umeå, this year selected as European Capital of Culture.
