About the project:
Grey Ljubljana created The Bedtime Storytellers digital platform in collaboration with telecommunications operator A1 Slovenia. The digital platform consists of a collection of Bedtime Fairy Tales - audio stories that promote intergenerational bonding between senior citizens and children. Senior people who move to retirement homes tend to lose contact with the outside world, causing the decline of their cognitive abilities. To reconnect them with the outside world and strengthen their cognitive abilities Grey Ljubljana and A1 Slovenia turned them into Bedtime Storytellers.
By reading and recording fairy tales, written exclusively by renowned Slovenian fairytale writers, the retirement home storytellers create a vast library of audio fairytales, that rock toddlers all over Slovenia to sleep every day.
