Storytelling for Norouz

Unfortunately this event has been cancelled.

*** Museum Closure Announcement***

Due to the advice of the Irish public health authorities and to protect the health and welfare of our visitors and staff, the Chester Beatty will be closed to the public until further notice.

“Under the blue dome of the sky, one day stories were created. Stories that have moved from heart to heart, calligrapher to calligrapher, painter to painter, poet to poet, people to people, language to language, land to land, voice to voice and soul to soul”. To celebrate Norouz, join storyteller Zahra Afsah for an afternoon of storytelling and poetry. Let us take you on a narrative journey as we recount the old tales and myths of Persian literature. Free, no booking required.

In association the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
