Dovecot welcomes SISF Global Gathering

Scottish Storytelling Centre launched the Scottish International Storytelling Festival ‘Open Word – Open World’ programme this week. The festival is taking place from 20 – 31 October 2017.

On Monday 23 October, Dovecot will welcome the Storytelling Festival’s Global Gathering to its building on Infirmary Street for a week, which sees 54 internationally invited guests join Scotland’s storytellers to showcase how the traditional art of storytelling is more vital than ever in connecting people worldwide, across cultures, places and generations.

Dovecot is proud to partner with SISF and will deliver a storytelling event on Saturday 28 October with Jan Bee Brown, as part of the Daughters of Penelope programme. The event is also partnered with Luminate Scotland’s creative ageing festival. This event is unfortunately fully booked but there are still a whole host of imaginative events planned across the city throughout the Festival. Check out the SISF Programme
