Swiss Storytelling Night takes place every year on the second Friday in November in venues all over Switzerland. When the nights become longer, when it is cold outside and winter is approaching, reading and storytelling are the proper remedy for low spirits. The Swiss Institute for Children’s and Youth Media SIKJM, which initiates the Swiss Storytelling Night every year, provides a slogan, appropriate book recommendations, and a thematically fitting poster designed by a Swiss illustrator that can be ordered by all organizers of a storytelling night. In addition, the SIKJM provides suggestions and advice how to organize an event.
Swiss Storytelling Night is a collaborative project with Bibliomedia and UNICEF-Switzerland.
