Scottish International Storytelling Festival 2022 - Open Call for Creative Proposals

Through the struggles of recent times, storytelling has been embraced as an art form because of what it offers to communities, families and artists at a time when human contacts and relationships have been under pressure.

What now for our personal and collective narratives? Help re-shape Scotland’s sense of itself in this Year of Stories.

SISF 2022 invites creatives within and beyond the storytelling community to join the Festival’s creative process by submitting a proposal on the theme of “Interpreting Scotland”, debating and shaping the stories that matter most for Scotland – past, present and future.

The application deadline is 5pm on Monday 23 May 2022. Find our more about the application process by hitting the button below and follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram – @scotstoryfest.
