Call for Tellers - Edmonton Conference May 2017
This year TALES is excited to be hosting the Storytellers of Canada/Conteurs du Canada national conference in conjunction with our annual festival in Edmonton, Alberta. We invite tellers who will be traveling to Edmonton for the conference to apply to tell as part of the festival’s daytime programming.
The theme for the conference and festival is 150 Golden Threads. Woven into our theme are strands of national history and heritage, milestones, prairie gold, some good yarns, and the lives of memorable Canadians. We welcome proposals on a variety of topics and in a variety of storytelling styles. It’s always exciting to see how storytellers interpret the theme!
