The art of free oral storytelling is experiencing a worldwide renaissance in times of digitalisation and migration. In Germany, the association Erzählkunst e.V. promotes this art form.
Erzählkunst e.V. is characterised by a contemporary, politically engaged self-image: Transcultural, multilingual storytelling is particularly close to our hearts, and we also expand traditional material to include (auto-) biographical, historical and fictional stories.
Aims and activities
Founded in Berlin in 2007, the Erzählkunst association promotes artistic storytelling in art and education. The association trains professional storytellers, runs a monthly open storytelling stage and initiates storytelling projects.
Over 50 German-speaking storytellers from 15 nations are organised in the association. The members introduce themselves here.
The Erzählkunst e.V. association works with numerous partners in the arts and education and is a member of two international associations.
