SISF Community Programme
Bookends and runs alongside the main Scottish International Storytelling Festival.
Schools and community groups are encouraged to take part in a storytelling celebration from Monday 2 September – Monday 2 December.
During this time, you are invited to book a storyteller for a local event, take part in the Beyond Words Story Exchange and share all your wonderful storytelling activity with the Scottish Storytelling Forum team and your community.
This year, in celebration of Scotland’s ‘Year of Conversation 2019’, the SISF Community Programme invites you to go Beyond Words.
Oral storytelling can be key in preserving traditions, celebrating old links and new connections and showcasing how music, dance and story help us converse and connect. Beyond Words is also a celebration of stories beyond the written word.
