StoryFest: International Storytelling Festival Singapore 2023

About StoryFest

Presented by The Storytelling Centre Limited and Arts House Limited, StoryFest is an annual festival that celebrates and showcases a variety of styles, repertoire and cultural arts presentations of storytelling from Singapore and around the world.

Cities are built from stories, and in telling them, we open new windows into their histories. This year, StoryFest takes audiences outdoors with Story Walk – a storytelling trail with three spellbinding word-weavers, delivering unique public art-inspired perspectives. Come re-experience the surroundings and monuments of the dynamic Civic District, and view our most iconic skylines in a refreshing new light.
