Beyond the Border exists to create, encourage and promote traditional storytelling for contemporary audiences.

Our vision is to 'bring the world to Wales, and take Wales to the world'. Our biennial international festival of storytelling is the cornerstone of our work, and in addition we run events and projects year-round to build audiences for storytelling and to communicate its power to entertain, transform and inform people’s lives.
