Congrès 2019 de Storytellers of Canada - Conteurs du Canada

Le congrès 2019 a pour thème : Le conte ou l'art de tisser les fils de la connaissance.

Elles transcendent les générations et sont au cœur de toutes les cultures. Porteuses de sens, elles contribuent de façon primordiale aux relations sociales humaines. Quels fils allez-vous partager avec nous?  

Nous sollicitons des propositions de conteurs professionnels chevronnés pour le prochain congrès de SC-CC, qui se tiendra du 5 au 9 juin 2019 à Fredericton, au Nouveau-Brunswick. Nous recherchons des conteurs pour les spectacles, ainsi que pour donner des classes de maîtres et des ateliers, reflets de la diversité présente dans la tradition orale. Nous nous intéressons particulièrement à l'utilisation de l'art du conte dans un cadre éducatif.

Email Scam

2018-05-08
Thanks to everyone who is letting us know about the email scam circulating with a too-good-to-be-true offer from the Oxford Storytelling Festival.

This is not the first time someone has sent this kind of message to storytellers; there are other versions of the scam using the names of other storytelling festivals, but the general nature of it is that a teller is offered a large quantity of money for a short performance, as well as airfare and accommodation. If they respond positively, they are asked for personal details, visa and passport information, and possibly banking details leading to potential identity or monetary theft.
