an alternative economy based on stories

After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.

We Love Stories





26-30 January 2022

Chania, Creta 

We Love Stories is an international festival dedicated to oral storytelling. Through theatre, cinema, music, illustration, sound art, shadow theatre, and dance poetry, we will share stories from around the world with the participation of artists from Greece, Italy, Austria, Poland, and Iceland. It is organized by STORY FOR FOOD (SFF), a Berlin-based international platform for collecting and archiving oral stories.

SFF audio collects and archives anonymous stories that would otherwise be lost, and exchanges them for food.

We Love Stories aspires to take the visitors of the festival on a journey to different parts of the world, through stories of strangers and folktales, and to also give them the opportunity to record their own stories in the SFF Story Audio Archive.

›⃝ Our podcast Stories in Berlin is back with Season 3 in May 2021. 

Stories in Berlin is a storytelling podcast that delves into the cobbled streets of Berlin and explores the city's history through anecdotes, personal tales, and experiences of Berliners, old and new.


Created by Christina Kyriazidi, the founder of the STORY FOR FOOD initiative, this podcast tours Berlin to audio collect stories that otherwise would be lost.


-------- Season 3 is launched in May 2021 for a total of 14 episodes. In this season, Christina will read for you, chapter by chapter, one chapter per episode, her novel 𝚃𝚑𝚎 𝙱𝚎𝚛𝚕𝚒𝚗𝚎𝚛𝚜, a collection of semi-fictional stories about the life of Berliners during the corona pandemic.

All stories take place on the same night, in late November 2020, in a lockdown Berlin. Every chapter tells the story of a different Berliner.
