Application for Free Professional Storyteller Visit – Scottish International Storytelling Festival

The Scottish International Storytelling Festival’s Community and Family Programme (Mon 12 Oct – Mon 30 Nov) is offering schools and community groups free storytelling sessions delivered by a professional teller.   

Perfectly positioned within Scotland’s ‘Year of Coasts and Waters 2020’, the SISF Community and Family Programme invites you to join The Big Scottish Story Ripple and to make use of financial support in order to do so. 

The Big Scottish Story Ripple  

Register to hold a storytelling event led by a professional storyteller from Scotland’s Storytelling Directory any time between 12 Oct – 30 Nov and the SISF will cover the cost of the storyteller’s fees for a 1 hr session.  

In return, successful applicants must offer a good deed back to their local community on or before St Andrew’s Day – continuing the ripple of kindness. 

  • Events can be held digitally or in small live local gathering that adheres to Covid-19 guidelines suggested at the time of the event.  
  • An applicant can make a maximum of two registrations per organisation 
  • Registrations close 5 October 2020 

Please note: SISF aim to offer financial support to all those that apply. However, if there is an over subscription, SISF will offer support on a first come, first served basis, so please get your application in as soon as possible.
