Storytelling

The association develops an activity entitled Storytellers of the Levante. It is a project in the area of oral literature, specifically in the art of storytelling. According to Bruno Batista, project coordinator, “ the intention is to gather all the storytelling apprentices in the region of Algarve and develop a project to research, publicize and present the many stories we have, including all different ages.” The project, started in October 2003 and hosted bi-monthly at the association’s headquarters in Lagoa, has the support of the Ataíde de Oliveira Studies Center at the Universidade do Algarve, dedicated to research and compilation of various genres of Oral Literature.
