Participate at the Storytelling Festival
Will you join us and read 'Grumpy Duck' in your language?
After this year’s succesful first International Storytelling Festival, we are happy to announce we will organise this event again in 2020! Just like last year, we will celebrate the fun and benefits of reading together. The International Storytelling Festival will be held during the Nationale Voorleesdagen 2020, on Saterday 1 February at the Bibliotheek Amstelveen Stadsplein.
The book 'Grumpy Duck' is selected as 'Storytelling book of the Year' and will also be the theme book of this year's Festival!
A library filled with many languages
During the festival, there will be several groups that read to children in their own language. The attending nationalities or language groups have one or more Readers. They have a dedicated area in the library where they read 'Grumpy Duck' and other books.
Next to these sessions, there is a main stage with a musical storytelling and theatre. The groups will also have a time slot at this stage.
Participate and apply as a Reader
We are looking for Readers that would like to participate:
- Is Dutch not your native language?
- Would you like to read to children at the Festival, and share your language and culture?
- Do you think it's fun to help us out on this international day with a lot of different nationalities?
Then we are looking for you! You can apply by filling out a form.
Please let us know before the 15th of November.
Hopefully you will be joining us at the 1st of February. More details of the festival will follow in due time. Looking forward to reading with you!
