Most of our members live and work in Asia (see https://feast.wildapricot.org/join-us for
our definition of countries in Asia) but we also have non-resident
members. Anyone is welcome at the Conference, regardless of nationality,
religion or place of abode. The focus is on Asian folktales, but not
As FEAST is only in its second year, our budget is limited. We are highly conscious of the considerable income differences in countries throughout the region, and we work hard to make the Conference fee as affordable as practically possible; the Directors and the team in Bangalore organising the Conference, are all working on a voluntary basis. Therefore, we are unable to pay travel or accommodation costs, but all workshop presenters will receive free admission to the Conference as well as a complimentary copy of FEAST’s second collection of Asian folktales which we plan to publish in association with the Conference.
For anyone thinking of taking an extended trip in the region, the Jakarta Storytelling Festival in Indonesia is on the 2 & 3 November and the 398.2 Storytelling Festival in Singaporeis on the 1st December and both festivals will consider requests to perform at them by storytellers who are confirmed as FEAST conference workshop presenters.
