The Honour of One is the Honour of All

L'honneur de l'un est l'honneur de tous

  

The 2018 SC-CC conference theme will involve storytellers and listeners learning and sharing how to strengthen the art of oral storytelling from a variety of applications, techniques and approaches using oral tradition. We are seeking proposals from experienced, professional storytellers for the upcoming SC-CC Conference 2018 (July 4 to July 8) in Peterborough, Ontario. The Program Committee is particularly interested in proposals from First Nations, Métis and Inuit artists. 


Everyone who has sent in proposals will be notified of decisions by January 2017. All proposals will be reviewed and a determined number selected. Those artists selected will be offered a reduced fee for conference registration. Airport shuttle from Toronto International Airport will be arranged for selected artists from away, but artists’ travel and accommodation costs will not be subsidized by SC-CC. An SC-CC letter of recommendation will be available for selected artists applying on their own for travel/accommodation subsidies from granting agencies.
