Canadian Storytelling Night
Storytellers of Canada - Conteurs du Canada offers grants to support cross-Canada events for Canadian Storytelling Night.
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.
November 3rd 2018 was the 7th Canadian Storytelling Night! This year's theme was Running Deep - The Power of Water. SC-CC is pleased to announce that in 2018 we awarded event funding assistance to Saskatoon Storytellers' Guild (contact is Danica Lorer), Deborah Dunleavy in Brockville, Ontario, Storytelling Orillia (contact is Susan Charters) and Cambridge, Ontario's Fresh Stories (contact is Carol Leigh Wehking)
2019's Canadian Storytelling Night's theme is "A Breath of Fresh Air". We are turning to air as we look to the north and the fourth quarter of the medicine wheel that we have been drawing on as inspiration for the event. The date this year is November 2, 2019, although events may be held before or after that date as it suits your community.
