The STET Storytelling Festival presents 4 storytelling masters curated by the Amsterdam Storytelling Festival.

On Saturday, British master storyteller and audience favourite Ashley Ramsden will brighten the weekend with a celebration of the life, poetry and stories of the beloved Jalāl al-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī, commonly known simply as Rumi.

750 years ago, the great teacher Jalal ad-Din Rumi stepped out of this world. He left behind a trail of light that continues to unite people of all beliefs.

Come celebrate the enlightened wisdom and vision of a man who saw in his own time of darkness how the lamps may be different, but the light the same.
