Good luck with this Carles. I am a storyteller living in Andalucia. I tell in english but would love to be part of the group if possible. I have just joined Red Internacional de Cuentacuentos. I am also working with a group of teachers in Cordoba encouraging them to use storytelling in their teaching of english (March 10th). Also a couple of performances booked at a space in Marbella.(March and April)
all the very best for AEDA's creation and developments and perspectives! Bravo!
Best thoughts
SAN is happy for AEDA, and we will be looking at your platform for potential storytellers.
Also, when our parent website launches than it will be obvious what else we will be needing.

Congratulations on creating this wonderful organization! I was planning on visiting Spain this summer (I lived in Rota as a child). If I do make it to Spain, I will let you know so that I can connect with members of your group.
