Welcome to Our World of Stories

Thank you everyone for A wonderful
inaugural FEAST Conference

We have had a truly wonderful three days in each other's company, with so many reunions amongst old friends and exciting encounters with new ones. We enjoyed a marvellous sense of belonging as we were surrounded by a warm and vibrant community of over 100 storytellers who shared a common passion. We heard so many good stories and benefitted from seeing such a diverse range of telling styles in the workshops, swops, and throughout the 398.2 Festival.

At the Welcoming Dinner, Roger spoke of a 'feast' as being synonymous with celebration, community and a sense of abundance, and our inaugural Conference was all of these things, and more.  Throughout December we'll be posting pictures, personal accounts and feedback from the exhilarating events of the 23-25th, but please allow us some time simply to recover from the exertions of preparing and presenting the conference and 398.2 Festival.

We are delighted to announce Bengaluru (Bangalore) as Host city for 2019. Mark the dates in your calendar now! 


What is FEAST?

The Federation of Asian Storytellers was set up by a group of experienced storytellers with a vision of promoting the art of storytelling in Asia.  It was officially launched in Chennai on 24 August 2018.   Through the work of the Federation, we want to create more opportunities for tellers to perform , internationally and inter-culturally, by organising Festivals, performances and teller exchanges.

We also want to share our skills and encourage FEAST's members to learn from one another, as we have learned from each other while performing together in Festivals over more than a decade.  We want to celebrate Asian stories and the many ways in which we make these tales connect with our audiences.

Through the work of FEAST we hope to develop new audiences and a new generation of storytellers.  We look forward to welcoming you to the FEAST - either as a chef (our tellers!) or as someone hungry to be fed (our audience).

Why Join FEAST?

Access regular webinars  that offer  you the chance to learn from experienced tellers as they share ideas on different aspects of storytelling.

The annual conference is a chance to meet fellow tellers, take part in practical workshops and see/hear lots of storytellers in action. The conference will be held in a different Asian city each year.

FEAST was set up by the directors of storytelling festivals in Bangkok, Chennai, Jakarta, Kuching, Seoul and Singapore, so if you tell a story at the Conference . . . you may be talent-spotted!

Professional members, have your own page which can introduce you to people looking for a storyteller outside of your usual contacts.

Enjoy our catalogue of stories told and recorded by our members - and  not only in English, too!  (The full catalogue will  only be accessible to members.) Over time it will become a fascinating and invaluable resource.

Looking for a story? Or a story on a theme? Or for a particular age-group? Or occasion?  Submit your storytelling questions to our Forum and tap on the shared wisdom of like-minded people.
