World Storytelling Day

Storytelling is, literally, as old as humans. Telling stories has formed the base of culture for as long as people have roamed the earth. Telling stories has been the way of sharing knowledge, passing on important information, remembering history and entertaining young ones.

Everyone from the Vikings, to the cave men of central Africa, or the bush people of Australia to the rappers in 1970’s Harlem have told stories.

But nowadays, often only the very young are told stories in a specific way. World Storytelling Day aims to change that.

World Storytelling day wants to celebrate the art of storytelling, whether it be to the youngest members of our society, or the oldest, sharing and enjoying stories and the spoken word.
