World Storytelling Day [BOOKED OUT]

World Storytelling Day is a global celebration, where individual storytelling events across the world coordinate on a shared theme. Annually, it takes place around the equinox, so approximately March 20 or 21 every year.

Each year on World Storytelling Day, as many people as possible gather together and stories are told throughout the day and night, continuing a tradition that is much older than written record. Although getting together face-to-face is not possible at the moment due to COVID-19, that doesn’t stop World Storytelling Day from reaching people in all corners of the globe!

Storytelling Day online in the Netherlands

At the 2021 edition in the Netherlands, the Dutch International Storytelling Centre (DISC) is hosting an online World Storytelling Day event for locals and internationals, both young and old. Based in The Hague, this organisation operates in English and its events are therefore perfect for internationals and expats!

The host organisation is teaming up with the Federation of European Storytelling (FEST) and acclaimed English storyteller Sharon Jacksties for the online festival via Zoom. Storytellers at this event are from Germany, UK, Poland, Greece and the Netherlands.

Storytelling meetups all year round

DISC has been holding regular workshops and "Online Storytelling Cafe" events, connecting international storytellers and curious listeners in The Hague and beyond during the pandemic. If you can't make it on March 21, you can always check out the other events on their Facebook page via the link below.
