The Kahaani festival is a children’s festival, which explores and reimagines the art of storytelling through oral traditions, music, theatre, dance and puppetry along with various other art forms.

Taking learning beyond the classroom, the Kahaani festival-through workshops, performances and storytelling sessions- creates an atmosphere for children to freely explore the realm of their imagination and creativity.

Produced by Teamwork Arts, the Kahaani festival travels across India with stories and storytellers from all around the world. Beyond the conventional forms of storytelling, the festival also features artists with unique styles providing them with a platform to showcase their art.
