What will we use your donation for?

Asia has some countries, such as Singapore, where storytelling is supported financially, thanks to government subsidies for the arts and an awareness of the power of storytelling in diverse fields such as education, business, counselling and community development. However, in many Asian countries, would-be storytellers struggle to make an income from their skills. The thought of travelling to a conference, even on a budget airline, plus paying conference fees, plus accommodation, is a daunting challenge.  So FEAST is looking to identify promising young tellers who are motivated to learn and develop their skills, especially if they live in countries which do not currently have a seat at the FEAST table. We want to provide them with financial support so that they can attend our sessions, both in person and on-line.  Our target of $5,000 is to bring ten tellers to the 2019 FEAST Conference. 

We also want to create tangible and lasting storytelling resources in the form of collections of folktales. 

  • Our first book will be launched at the  Conference and is appropriately themed around Asian tales featuring FOOD. 
  • In 2019, we are planning to launch a second book of Asian tales at the Asian Festival of Children's Content (Singapore, Sept 2019).  This book will celebrate KIDS AS HEROES. It will be written for children, with supporting elements (such as a draft storyboard and puppets to cut-out and colour) to encourage kids to re-tell stories themselves. And of course, we'll give them a platform to share their videos here!
If you have any questions, please do contact us. We would love to hear from you.
