EPIC STORYTELLING WEEKEND IN VANCOUVER IN NOVEMBER!
TWO DAYS OF STORIES FROM 1001 NIGHTS
Ontario SC-CC Members,
Storytelling Toronto is offering Storycare Workshops in December. These December workshops will be of great interest to Ontario storytellers, healthcare workers, volunteers and families who work with seniors. Seniors are also welcome to register and participate in the workshops.
These workshops provide an opportunity to explore “the use and value of narrative practice and storytelling in health and care for older adults”. All are welcome!
SCAM - BEWARE
We recently received an email invitation to participate in The Scottish International Storytelling Festival 2016. After emailing with the festival's real organizer, the member confirmed that this invitation was a scam. This is a similar scam that we discovered last year for the Wales International Storytelling Festival.
The email asks that the teller gives a guest performance and to provide personal information, and offers a great deal of money and perks for the appearance. We assume that once the teller bites, he or she is asked for banking information.
If you receive an invitation to ANY festival, please confirm its authenticity with the festival organizer.

Invited and local tellers, featuring guest Clara Dugas from Halifax, will tell about our relationship to land, from local elder Mark Douglas who will speak from his people's history in the area, to Clara, who will speak about a Willful Woman, her Acadian grandmother. A local conservancy teller is invited, and Mehreen Shahid, of the Orillia Packet and Times, will tell a story grounded in her two homelands, Canada and Pakistan.
The audience will be asked to respond with stories and and time for an open mic will be provided. Ruth Watt will be the MC, and Michael Martyn will be bring music
Recall, Remember, Write, Tell
A workshop, the day after Canadian Storytelling Night
Nov. 6, 1:30- p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Orillia Museum of Art and History
Offering lots of encouragement, Clara will do activities to help you recall memorable events in your life. This workshop could lead to writing memoirs and/or to telling the stories.
After teaching for 35 years, Clara now fills her time as a bilingual storyteller. Her years of teaching and childhood memories in rural Nova Scotia enrich her stories, always authentic and often packed with humour. In 2007 Clara wrote a teacher's guide for storytelling in the French schools of Nova Scotia.
