Enjoy the Nice Festival du Livre from the 31st of May to the 2nd of June 2019! Hundreds of authors and publishers come to this book festival. Workshops, autographing and sundry other interactive events are organized, complemented by music performances.
The Mezrab Storytelling School offers a three-day introductory course covering the basics of storytelling — how to craft a short story and share it with the audience in an engaging way.
The Mezrab Storytelling School was founded by Sahand Sahebdivani. He was born in Iran but fled at the age of three to the Netherlands with his parents. He was trained as a storyteller in the Dutch Royal Institute of the Tropics. In 2004 he opened the Mezrab Cultural Center, which has since grown to be one of the most important stages of storytelling in the world. In 2014 the Dutch storytelling community awarded him the title Storyteller of the Year.
