Ik deel graag twee berichten met jullie, het ene voor een videoconferentie, het andere voor vertellers die in Coronatijd projecten ontwikkelen.
Met een hartelijke groet, Walter.

FEST online Forum #1: Storytelling during Corona

View this email in your browser: ... e62284b925

Thursday the 30th of April, 8 pm - 9 pm (CET)
7 pm (GMT) / 9 pm (EET)
Without doubt, the current Corona crisis is affecting us all. Some lost all work, others are exploring new opportunities and taking new initiatives. Some of us might be depressed, other might see it as an interesting time. What connects us is that we all have to re-invent ourselves, just like everybody else in Europe and the rest of the world.

We feel the need to talk to colleagues all over Europe, to share feelings and experiences, to find mental support or even to get inspired.

That is why FEST will host online forums, starting coming Thursday, the 30th of April at 8 pm (CET). We invite you all to join and to discuss being a storyteller or a storytelling organisation in these crazy times. The gathering will be moderated by Senem Donatan Mohan and Arjen Barel.

We will start with some statements from FEST members, after that there will be time for everyone willing to express and discuss. We will try to host this forum within a 1 hour timeframe.

Before the meeting, you will receive a link to access the FEST ONLINE FORUM.
Please make sure to link up 5 minutes in advance in case of technical issues so we can start on time.

We hope to see many of you on Thursday!

Note 1: We won’t focus too much on the pros and cons of on-line video performances, as we will leave that for a second gathering.
Note 2: Everyone is welcome, so don’t hesitate to share this message.

Open Call for Corona Proof Oral Storytelling Projects

View this email in your browser: ... c566fda30b

Deadline 4th of May (May the force be with you)
This spring 2020, the entire cultural field was put off because of restrictions imposed by the authorities based on the corona pandemic. We are in a difficult situation, where our everyday lives are characterized by chaos and uncertainty. Many artists are in a very vulnerable position financially, this includes oral storytellers.
For oral storytellers, restrictions from the authorities hit hard. All work, all assignments have been cancelled for a long time to come. We cannot perform, we cannot meet to produce new performances, we cannot teach. Organisers experience huge revenue losses and are in a critical financial situation.
The Federation for European Storytelling (FEST) is very concerned about oral storytellers who are in a special position without any kind of safety net.

FEST will therefore support existing digitalisation and media-mediated projects, that show how storytellers organise their activities for a remote audience.
