Storytelling Festival Toolkit 2023

The Digital Festival of Storytelling 2023 was a free week-long online programme from a vibrant variety of storytellers, talks and workshops.  The programme was complemented by a toolkit of video tips from our storytellers to help our community put together their own stories in creative and imaginative ways.

The toolkit is a mix of videos recorded by our storytellers with tips on how to tell engaging, sensitive and imaginative stories that grab the attention of your audiences and downloadable documents on how to record yourself. Take a look below!
