Scotland’s community and contemporary storytelling festival is back for 2022! Our hybrid festival offers opportunities to connect in person and online as we explore Re:Connection and Transformation – Storytelling In a Precarious World, through performance, screenings, exhibitions, talks and workshops, and the launch of an international storytelling toolkit.
We are thrilled to present an extraordinary line-up of internationally acclaimed storytellers premiering new work in Scotland, alongside thought-provoking discussions, creative workshops, and family events. Join us for breathtaking aerial acrobatics paired with stories of seals and the sea in Sonder Circus and Kittlin’s Selkie Soul (all ages), as well as mythic mayhem as we brace ourselves for tales to make you rip up the rules and riot with the Women Who Gave No F*cks (strictly grown ups!). Brand new commissions include a story of ancient plants and modern relationships with Raymond Wilson, an exploration of the Scottish witch hunts through story, film and music with Allison Galbraith, and a series of digital experiments investigating what it means to tell stories online.
We are also proud to present performances from the groups who engage with us at the Village Storytelling Centre and who are at the heart of our work. These include insights into women’s experience of homelessness with the Simon Community Scotland and stories of new Glaswegians, The Voices of Peace Storytellers, who have lost their homes and countries but met here and made new connections.
We can’t wait to welcome you to #VSF22!
