Scottish International Storytelling Festival
The 2012 Scottish International Storytelling Festival celebrates the art of folktales across Europe, tracing the way in which the publication of the Grimm Tales 200 years ago, sparked a revival of interest in nations and regions across the continent and influenced every artform. Today storytelling itself is once again flourishing across Europe and the Festival offers an unrivalled opportunity to hear and meet the best of the wordspinners from Scottish and European traditions to participate in workshops and international networking, and if you wish, to travel on to regions of Scotland where traditional arts continue to thrive.
With performances, workshops, conferences, family storytelling spectaculars, music and film, SISF 2012 is the complete storytelling experience in Edinburgh, Glasgow and across Scotland.
Whether you're a professional storyteller, someone who's curious about oral storytelling traditions, or you're just looking for a refreshing evening's entertainment, the SISF is the highlight of Edinburgh's autumn. Don't miss out on Scotland, old Europe, and the magic of live storytelling. Come and explore!
