Call for proposals for the Storytellers of Canada 2024 Conference
July 10th to 14th, in Sherbrooke, Quebec
Storytellers of Canada – Conteurs du Canada is seeking proposals from experienced professional storytellers for the next SC-CC conference, which will be held in Sherbrooke, Quebec, at Bishop’s University, from July 10th-14th, 2024. We are looking for artists to perform in one evening concert and to deliver Master classes and/or workshops reflecting the diversity inherent to oral tradition. New for 2024, we’ll be offering a virtual conference package that includes access to live-streamed concerts, presentations, and a selection of online-only workshops.
The conference theme for 2024 is ‘Harmony’. This is a time to connect with nature, with one another, and with yourself, in the beautiful setting of Quebec’s Eastern Townships. Although our theme is ‘Harmony’, for the concert we will be looking for story proposals that have tension and struggle, yet end with a peaceful resolution that leave the listener with a sigh of contentment.
