Event Details


31st Annual International VASTA Conference
The Art of Storytelling
4 – 8 August 2017
LASALLE College of the Arts

Join us for the first VASTA Conference ever held in Asia, where regional and international experts will showcase techniques and uses of the human voice particular to the Asian region. Many of these connect to oral storytelling traditions specific to cultures in Asia and the Pacific. VASTA Asia 2017’s theme is ‘The Art of Storytelling.’

We chose the art of storytelling to involve people at the deepest levels, to bridge a cultural exchange through voice and communication because a good story transcends cultural boundaries. Practitioners from Asia, the Pacific, Europe and the Americas share knowledge about the human voice and how it works, about vocal training and the powerful impact of communication through vocal sounds, words, storytelling, dramatic text and the sung voice. Network with voice and speech trainers, scientists, performers, and public speakers from around the world to celebrate the human voice in its many qualities, dialects and languages, and develop future areas for investigation and research. VASTA Asia 2017 will be an exciting time for vocal, personal, pedagogical and cultural exchange.

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” – Maya Angelou
