A celebration of Oral Storytelling with Storytellers from Ireland, Italy and France.
Scéalaiocht …. Storia…. Contes… celebrates the joys of oral storytelling. Storytelling, which is experiencing a revival and blossoming all across Europe and one of the bedrocks of Ireland’s rich cultural heritage.
Different languages, different styles of storytelling, but the same desire to communicate with audiences is the inspiration of Scéalaiocht …. Storia…. Contes… eye to eye, heart to heart.
Through a number of European languages – Irish, English, French, Occitan and Italian – storytellers travel to where the audience is throughout Galway.
