If you like telling Asian stories, you're welcome to join the FEAST! It doesn't matter what ethnicity, gender or faith you are, if you want to share Asian stories, come join the FEAST! We have six types of membership:
If you are already an active and capable storyteller who wants to market your skills and services to more clients/audiences at home and abroad, this category is for you! The benefits of professional membership are (a) you will have your own individual profile on our site where you can list your experience, upload a link to 3 sample videos and provide a link to your website, facebook or blog; (b) you can submit videos of you telling to our Story Circle, which will add to your visibility and demonstrate your style; and (c) you can make friends with, and learn from, some of the most experienced storytellers in Asia.
If you are interested in storytelling but you are still developing the skills and experience to become a more confident and effective teller, or if you prefer to tell simply for fun (eg within your family or community) or as part of your work (eg as teachers, librarians, counsellors), this is the group for you.
This is a new category (September 2018) created in response to enquiries on behalf of emerging tellers. The main criteria is that you are under 30 years old (ie born after 1989 for registering this year). The chief benefit of registering as a Young Storyteller is that your membership gives you free of charge access to all the FEAST webinars, as we encourage you to take the opportunity to learn from our collective expertise. You are also entitled to a 50% discount on the Conference fee.
Non-Resident in Asia (Please see our definition of Asia here).
If you are not resident in Asia, while we welcome your interest in and support of FEAST, we hope you won't mind that we are charging you a little more. Your membership fee will go into a bursary fund to support deserving tellers from some Asian countries.
This is for organisations which run or promote storytelling events, and other organisations that wish to be affiliated with FEAST and our network of tellers.(Including book councils, libraries, educational institutions with storytelling programmes, publishers, or media and content producers such as television and radio).
Institutional : Story Festival
We are keen to be connected with Story Festivals, not only in Asia but around the world and therefore offer this special category. It offers you your own profile page. (with website, logo and a write up on your Festival programming) and the chance to send two representatives to the Conference at Members rates.
Note: all fees are in Singapore dollars (which hovers around $1.36 to the US dollar - August 2018).
