Welcome to the Baltic Storytelling Centre (BASiC)!

Based on the principle that storytelling is a basic need, The Baltic Storytelling Centre’s mission is to actively nurture oral storytelling tradition in the Baltic States as well as promote the stories from the Baltics abroad.

The BASiC is a multi-venue platform which aims to represent the Baltic Storytelling tradition and strengthen its role in the context of European Storytelling heritage.

The Baltic Storytelling Centre focuses on the following:

  • organizing storytelling workshops in different venues for everyone  who wants to learn the art of storytelling;
  • organizing storytelling events where the local storytellers could meet the foreign artists;
  • participating in the storytelling festivals while promoting Baltic Storytelling tradition;
  • collaborating with the other institutions that are promoting storytelling art and cultural heritage.
