The Federation of Asian Storytellers was set up by a group of experienced storytellers with a vision of promoting the art of storytelling in Asia. It was officially launched in Chennai on 24 August 2018. Through the work of the Federation, we want to create more opportunities for tellers to perform , internationally and inter-culturally, by organising Festivals, performances and teller exchanges.
We also want to share our skills and encourage FEAST's members to learn from one another, as we have learned from each other while performing together in Festivals over more than a decade. We want to celebrate Asian stories and the many ways in which we make these tales connect with our audiences.
Through the work of FEAST we hope to develop new audiences and a new generation of storytellers. We look forward to welcoming you to the FEAST - either as a chef (our tellers!) or as someone hungry to be fed (our audience).
