A new SC-CC Event series! Conversations (with Christine)

Conversations (with Christine) is a series of informal Zoom chats hosted by SC-CC President Christine Hennebury that will bring storytellers together to share (and to create) collective wisdom about stories and storytelling practices. The purpose of these chats is to build community and to share information so we aren’t trying to come to a specific conclusion or to develop an action plan, this is just about conversation!
Please join us to chat about your tried-and-true techniques/the things you are exploring and let’s see what new ideas we come up with together. Registration is required. These events are open to everyone- members and non-members alike! Please spread the word with your storytelling friends!

SC-CC Spring Programming: "Let me tell you...", a series of francophone discussion groups
For Spring 2024, we are offering a series of three French programs. This series is called ‘Let me tell you’. You don’t need to be an expert to have advice worth sharing! In these informal, social get-togethers, we invite you to share your valuable insight, ideas, and experiences with your fellow storytellers from across the country. These Spring 2024 events will be entirely in French, but don’t worry- we’ll offer an English series in Fall 2024!
Dans le cadre de notre programmation francophone du printemps 2024, nous vous proposons une série de rencontres sociales virtuelles et informelles durant lesquelles vous pourrez rencontrer vos pairs et discuter de différents sujets liés à votre pratique de l'art du conte.
Pas besoin d'être expert·e pour aider les autres! Parfois, un simple regard extérieur suffit. Ces rencontres en ligne se veulent un espace sécuritaire où créer des liens avec vos pairs conteurs et conteuses francophones de tout le pays. Ces rencontres sur Zoom, informelles et chaleureuses, seront animées par Julie Turconi, coordonnatrice des relations francophones de SC-CC. Vous pourrez y partager ressources, informations et idées, et discuter de vos expériences avec vos pairs. Nous aborderons un sujet différent à chaque rencontre. Venez partager votre expérience et enrichir votre pratique grâce à celle des autres!
