Mardi du Conte /Telling Tuesday 3 OCTOBRE 2017

2017-06-20
La mission de Conteurs du Canada se lit comme suit: «Par l'art du conte, Conteurs du Canada relie les gens, reflète les cultures et inspire la découverte.» Storytelling Orillia prend ce message à cœur, avec des histoires qui viennent du cœur, à l'occasion de rencontres du Cercle des conteurs ou lors d'événements divers. Bob Graham a proposé une nouvelle manière bien excitante de se connecter par le biais des histoires et c'est ainsi que le Mardi du Conte a été inauguré le 18 octobre 2016 à Orillia.
