World Storytelling Day 2016 started slowly at the Kwani Grounds in Westlands, Nairobi but eventually blew up to being one of the biggest events of the literary calendar for 2016 so far. The theme of the event was re-imagined.

There was much to enjoy at the venue with storytelling being at the centre of it all in all its forms with song and dance and everything else incorporated. Supporting these activities were workshops for those who want to get into the storytelling business like in blogging, poetry, illustration and what have you. Here are some images from the events of Saturday.
