The Asian Congress of Storytellers started in 2000 and this year we are proud to be 15 years old!

The congress boldly targets current trends in the storytelling movement by addressing the power of translation in reviving and creating awareness of oral narrative traditions. 

The Congress has formed the core programming for the festival and continues to provide a comprehensive professional development platform for storytellers and all those interested in stories.
