St. John’s Storytelling Festival Presents: As I Was Saying… The Art of Recitation in Newfoundland and Labrador
St. John’s Storytelling Festival Presents:
As I Was Saying… The Art of Recitation in Newfoundland and Labrador
From Nan Blunden's pantry, to Red Island, to the Big Land, home-grown recitations speak uniquely of Newfoundland and Labrador.
On Wednesday, June 24th and Thursday, June 25th at 7:00 pm local time, join us on Zoom for As I Was Saying… a recitation event in the style of a song circle, where storytellers will share their recitations, discuss inspiration, and take questions from the audience. Hosted by storyteller and folklorist Dale Jarvis you are guaranteed a peek into the history of the province, insight into the art form, and more than a barrel of laughs.

In light of events over the past few weeks which have highlighted an ongoing and deeply-rooted racism problem- both nationally and internationally- we want to be clear that Storytellers of Canada-Conteurs du Canada strongly condemns anti-Black discrimination, and all forms of racism that permeate our society. SC-CC is committed to amplifying the voices of Black artists and Black arts professionals and we will share anti-racism learning materials and other materials that highlight the work of black storytelling artists and the importance of storytelling in understanding one another.
We recognize and honor all of those whose lives have been cut tragically short by police violence. Storytellers of Canada recognizes the inherent racism in our country’s colonial roots and since 2016, has been actively working towards reconciliation with the help of our Indigenous Advisory Council. We will continue this work, and to work against anti-black racism. We welcome suggestions and are intent on learning how to contribute to a more inclusive society.
