CAPE CLEAR INTERNATIONAL VIRTUAL STORYTELLING FESTIVAL 2021
2ND- 5TH SEPTEMBER
Please Note all times UTC+1
This year we are boldly embracing the Zoom platform, that in this past year has kept the flame alive in the storytelling world and has opened options for those who cannot attend the real festival. It offers us an exciting opportunity for this year, to leap into the virtual realm and hear stories…without leaving home!
For those of you who know and love the festival, we will be back.
For this year we have created a series of events and extended the weekend to include Thursday, and it is all live, the closest we can get to the real deal.
