The Singapore International Storytelling Festival Opens September 1st
Date: 1 - 5 September 2012

In today’s modern consciousness, we are inundated with stories. The fancy buzzwords of advertising and marketing campaigns, inspirational inscriptions of an organisation’s evolution and animated anecdotes over the dinner table are part of the stories that permeate our everyday routines and shape our daily interactions with people.

Since the inauguration of SISF in 2006, the annual festival has attracted more than 200,000 visitors with its key programmes for teachers, librarians, storytellers, social workers, community workers, professionals, performers, writers, parents, and children.

With the myriad of applications for storytelling, SISF presents infinite opportunities for development. The storytelling offerings will awaken your senses, warm your soul, inspire your creative expression, and help further your aspirations.

This year at the Singapore International Storytelling Festival, we are celebrating Asian stories with a global perspective. Join renowned storytellers for workshops and performances and enjoy the diversity of Asia through Monkey King: Journey to the West told by Diane Wolkstein, a keertan session where stories are sung and Rakugo – Japanese sit-down comedy.

Venue: The Arts House, 1 Old Parliament Lane
