Erzählkunst goes international!

Networking is everything– Berlin – Budapest – Brixen

Storytelling brings people together, creates experiences, weaves a web from mouth to ear across all borders. We think outside the box and wander far and wide, as stories once did, to bring home our impressions, new connections and great storytelling artists inside.

From 14.- 16.6.2023 storytelling artists from all over Europe met in Veszprém, an hour away from Budapest, for the annual conference of FEST, the Federation of European StoryTellers:  FEST Conference – FEST Network (

From 23.6. – 25.6.2023 we were in Brixen.

The German-speaking storytellers from Austria, Switzerland and Germany network there at the Erzählertreffen des VEE: Erzählertreffen – VEE (

We celebrated: 15 Years of Storytelling Stage Erzählbühne!

The big celebration for the anniversary

with surprise guests, live music, fire show and open stage.
We ate, drank, sang, laughed and listened to stories – and we are already looking forward to the next 15 years with you!

At the 2.12.2022 in the KulturMarktHalle Berlin.
And it goes on, every month on the 3rd Friday, next time in autumn 2023.
