Fairy tales, emerging from the oral tradition, are some of the oldest narratives we have. Following mythologies, legends, epics, folk tale traditions, fairy tales contain elements from the realistic to the supernatural and the fantastic. Having been told in different cultures and in different languages, these tales change and transform as they pass from mouth to mouth, from culture to culture, from generation to generation; it is the foremost part of our tendency to create, to tell, to share. Hoping to add more to explorations in understanding fairy tale, we invites varieties of disciplines, professions, practitioners and storytellers to create, tell and share with us.
Fairy tales work on various levels: as psychoanalytic maps, as reflections of traditions, stereotypes or traumas of collective or personal consciousness, guides to navigating, understanding and functioning in life, as well as including regional or international imageries, motifs and symbols. As a part of our cultural memory as well as history, they are is filled with vast ranges of imagery, symbols and motifs which are continually being adapted, rewritten, reinterpreted and subject to formal and thematic changes.
