On 2nd July 2022, the Melton Foundation hosted a Virtual Townhall to connect around stories, share laughs, increase awareness, and celebrate LGTBQI+ pride together!
The Festival Global de Storytelling 2022 was a celebration of the power of storytelling, as a way to spark change and create peace and empathy through comon experiences and stories. Co-organized by Lighthouse Storytelling -a new-media organization brought up by Melton Fellows around the world-, this event was the first of its kind in Spanish, opening new venues for storytellers to connect, beyond barriers of language!
The Festival consisted in 4 main events: A Preliminar Talk, an Opening Pannel, a Hands-on Workshop, and a Showcase for Arts and Storytelling; each one hosting many diverse storytellers from many places across Latin America and Europe. Keep reading about this grand event below. Spanish content ahead!
