Celebrating Storytellers of Canada/Conteurs du Canada
Storytellers of Canada/Conteurs du Canada (SC-CC) was founded in 1993 as a result of a national meeting in Montreal instigated by Rosalyn Cohen. Since then, SC-CC holds an national conference in a different location each year. In 2000, SC-CC was incorporated as a Non-Profit Organization and received its National Arts Service Organization designation.
SC-CC functions as the national representative for those involved in maintaining and practising oral traditions in Canada.
SC-CC encourages the participation of all peoples, by recognizing storytelling as a common root of all cultures and by making strong, positive efforts towards regional and cultural inclusion.
