Catherine Wright

Catherine WrightCatherine Wright is a multidisciplinary artist and storyteller from St. John’s, NL where she has been active for over thirty years as a performer, arts advocate and enthusiastic arts educator.  

Catherine tells a variety of stories including folk and fairy tales, personal stories and her own imaginative tales.  Her performances often interweave storytelling with movement/dance and song. Catherine has presented independently and in collaboration with storytellers, musicians and dancers at many community events, festivals and venues (outdoor locations, galleries, theatres, libraries…) for a range of audiences from preschoolers to seniors.  

“It’s amazing what stories can do – transport, inform, entertain, transfix…  Through stories we can discover commonalities and break down boundaries. I love that sense of connectedness. Storytelling allows us to be in the moment while also taking us to another time and place.”

For many years, Catherine has been a versatile educator. She has conducted diverse arts projects and has toured to provincial schools.  

“We all need chances for playful exploration and personal expression.”

Catherine is the NL provincial coordinator for Storytellers of Canada and past president of St. John’s Storytelling Inc.
