Canadian Storytelling Night

Storytellers of Canada - Conteurs du Canada offers grants to support cross-Canada events for Canadian Storytelling Night. 

CSN-SNC is a growing event supported by Storytellers of Canada-Conteurs du Canada, an opportunity to share Canadian stories, a time to gather at the turn of the year when the nights grow longer and colder, and a companion to World Storytelling Day in March.

Begun in Orillia, Ontario in 2012, Canadian Storytelling Night was celebrated in 2016 by more than a dozen events across the country, from Victoria to Halifax!

Canadian Storytelling Night is held annually during the first week of November. Small grants are available from SC-CC to applicants organizing events for Canadian Storytelling Night. Hold a Canadian Storytelling Night in your community. Join a national event, and promote storytelling close to home.

2017's Canadian Storytelling Night will be held November 4th, and is called Feed the Fires - Stories to Warm Us. SC-CC is please to announce event funding assistance to the Nelson Storytelling Guild, TALES Calgary, the Saskatoon Storytelling Guild, Storytelling Orillia, and Toronto'sYork Storytelling Guild.
