STORYTELLERS' CONFERENCE 2023 - The Journey, Indonesia

Jakarta Indonesia

Join us in an extraordinary two-day storytelling conference, The Journey, organized by the Federation of Asian Storytellers, taking place in Jakarta, Indonesia, in November 2023. Immerse yourself in a vibrant gathering of storytellers, educators, and enthusiasts from across Asia and beyond as we embark on an unforgettable exploration of the power of storytelling.

The Journey is a celebration of diverse storytelling traditions, cultures, and voices, fostering a dynamic exchange of ideas and experiences. With a rich lineup of engaging workshops, a panel discussion, and captivating cultural experiences, this conference offers a unique platform for storytellers to connect, learn, and grow.

Delve into the art of storytelling through a wide range of immersive workshops facilitated by renowned storytellers. Uncover the secrets of crafting compelling narratives, honing your performance skills, and effectively engaging your audience. The programme of 16 workshops caters to storytellers at all levels of experience.

Expand your storytelling repertoire by embracing innovative approaches and techniques. Learn how to infuse music and rhythm into your tales, adding a new dimension to your performances. Discover the power of tandem storytelling, where multiple voices intertwine, creating a harmonious narrative experience. Gain insights into using food and recipes as storytelling tools, connecting cultural traditions and experiences through shared meals.

The conference workshops provide valuable insights into the impact and relevance of storytelling in contemporary society. Engage in lively discussions, exchange ideas, and gain inspiration from these influential voices shaping the storytelling landscape.

'The Journey' conference also offers ample networking opportunities, allowing you to connect with fellow storytellers and enthusiasts, forge meaningful collaborations, and foster a vibrant storytelling community across Asia.
