World Storytelling Day 2021 updates


A note from our World Storytelling Day Project Coordinator, Jennifer Cayely:


World Storytelling Day Grants

Virus or no, this has been an extravagantly beautiful fall; warm and bright with the colours more brilliant than they have been for years. While we are of course moving towards winter now, we are also moving nearer to the spring on the other side of it. With that spring comes World Storytelling Day (WSD). If you don’t know about WSD there’s more info here:  

Like everything else at the moment, the whole situation is a bit complicated. The WSD theme has not been announced yet though it is expected in a week or two. The regular deadline for WSD grant applications will consequently need to be changed, probably to around Dec. 1, 2020 with notification by Jan. 1, 2021 depending on exactly when the theme is clear.

In the meantime, I would encourage you to look at the information about the SC-CC,WSD grants

Start dreaming, planning, thinking now!
