At Midsummer I’ll be joining the FEST Conference 2017– Stories In Borderlands. Finnish storytelling organization Samova Storytelling has been a member of FEST Inpo since 2013 and at this year’s conference we’ll represent Samova with my collague Ilkka Hautala. (At the same time I will represent Art in Integreation -project Story Sharing Universum and multilingual storytelling trio 3Troubadours.) The conference will be followed by a two-day storytelling festival in Northern Ireland, where I will share a stage with some great storytellers from different parts of Europe. Looking forward to meet old and new friends and to be inspired by conversations and new ideas for collaboration. See you at Ireland!
FEST (Federation for European Storytelling) promotes the mobility of ideas and collaborations in and across Europe. By offering mechanisms for sharing, learning, advocacy and relationship building, it wishes to empower the world of storytelling. FEST is an international non-profit organisation (INPO) based in Belgium but with membership all across Europe. www.fest-network.eu

Altogether we are planning to have twelve Mobile Dreams performances but some of them are still in the works. Stay tuned for the complete list of tour dates & venues!
Our work is made possible by Nordic Culture Point and the grant we did receive from them at the end of last year. Great thanks! We are ready to go.
