The Storytelling Tent
Visiting the storytelling tent at Art in Action is always a magical and engaging experience for all ages. This year is no exception. A new group of talented and enthusiastic storytellers will be telling tales from across the world – the only question is which ones to choose!
Stories will be told throughout the day, and there will be a workshop, open to all ages, at 3pm each day.
The Storytellers - Please note, our website currently shows information about those who participated in Art in Action 2012. We will begin updating the site from January 2013 as the storytellers are confirmed for next year's show.
