HomeOLIOS 2022


30 APRIL 2022

What is an 'olio'?

An olio is a performance that features a combination, or medley, of tellers – the word derives from olla, a savory medley dish of Iberian origin (how appropriate – a feast word that first appeared in English in the 1640s!)

Why have we launched the Olio initiative?

Collaboration is a key focus for FEAST this year, to build on the experience of the FEST. We hope the Olios' will foster a team ethic among different tellers, reaching out beyond their own local or national circle of friends. Bearing this in mind, please be considerate of other members in your team. Since the initiative is designed to showcase more members, it is HIGHLY UNLIKELY that any one member will be selected to appear in more than one olio.

OLIOs are a new initiative for FEAST in 2022 with three scheduled for :

OLIO - Kids - 28th June (team decided)

OLIO - Multilingual (MTL) - 16th November

OLIO - Adults - 21st December

Deadline to submit proposalsfor MTL and Adults:

30 April 2022.

Any FEAST member who wishes to submit an OLIO proposal for consideration needs to have attended the webinar (either by registering for it live or viewing the archive recording) as will all tellers in the selected teams.
