World Storytelling Day 2019
The Wednesday Group will be celebrating World Storytelling Day on
Wednesday 20th March
Little London Community Centre
(everyone has a story, what’s yours?)
World Storytelling Day is a global celebration of the art of oral Storytelling It is celebrated every year on the March Equinox, on (or near) March 20. On World Storytelling Day, as many people as possible tell and listen to stories in as many languages and at as many places as possible, during the same day and night. Participants tell each other about their events in order to share stories and inspiration, to learn from each other and create International contacts.
The significance in the event lies in the fact that it is the first global celebration of storytelling of its kind, and has been important in forging links between storytellers often working far apart from each other. It has also been significant in drawing public and media attention to storytelling as an artform.
