What the Festival contributes:

Annual Workshops

From October to January each year, workshops are held for adults who work with children. These teachers, recreation leaders, parents and others then instruct the children in the art of storytelling. The children select stories to tell from books, and are coached by teachers, recreation leaders, or their parents.
