With his delightful Alentejo accent, Serafim is a storyteller, reading mediator, humourist and writer
Jorge Serafim is the guest storyteller at the 4th edition of ‘Contos ao Luar’ (Moonlight Storytelling), organised by Vilamoura International School (CIV), which will take place on Friday, September 23, starting at 6pm. Entrance is free.
Says the school, “don’t miss this evening dedicated to storytelling lovers – children and adults (with an inner child) – where music, flavours of the world and stories will have their special place”.
After the first editions, held in 2014, 2016 and 2018 – and after a break imposed by the pandemic – the ‘Contos ao Luar’ initiative is returning with Serafim.
This will be a revisit as the storyteller was guest of honour at the first edition of this bi-annual event, which has already brought to CIV names such as Luís Carmelo, Sofia Maul, Patrícia Amaral (Tixa), Thomas Bakk, and Rodolfo Castro.
With his delightful Alentejo accent, Serafim is a storyteller, reading mediator, humourist and writer, and has told stories to audiences of all ages, both in Portugal and abroad. He has several published books and was recently the curator of the ‘Palavras Andarilhas’ event, which takes place in the city where he was born, Beja.
This celebration, which is already a tradition at the Vilamoura International School, has as its main purpose “to promote storytelling and to capture the audience with the magic of stories, which stimulate our emotional, cognitive, experiential and creative dimensions”.
All are welcome to attend. “Educators, teachers, parents, students and storytellers will be waiting for your visit to CIV,” concluded the school.
