A little less than one week from now, Hungary will have it's second international storytelling festival!!!
That is one of the many reasons I have been so busy lately.
We organized the first Holnemvolt Festival last March; our goal was to introduce international storytelling to the Hungarian audiences. We had almost no funding, but we had a lot of volunteers; awesome people who helped us arrange everything in time! We had amazing storytellers from all over the world, and a lot of fun!
And this year, we are doing it again!
Unfortunately, I don't get to go home for the festival this year. But I will be following everything that happens next weekend!
In the meantime, here are some links:
My blog about last year's festival: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3
Our Facebook page (with pictures and the introductions of our performers in Hungarian and English)
Our YouTube channel (with videos in various languages)
By the way, Holnemvolt is Hungarian for 'Once upon a time'.
(Well, technically, our stories start with 'Egyszer volt, hol nem volt' - which means 'There was, and there wasn't')
Only one week to go!
