Le thème du congrès 2018 de SC-CC amènera conteurs et auditeurs à découvrir ensemble comment renforcer l’art du conte oral par l’intermédiaire de diverses applications, techniques et approches utilisant la tradition orale. Nous sollicitons des propositions de conteurs professionnels d’expérience pour ce prochain congrès, qui se tiendra du 4 au 8 juillet 2018 à Peterborough, en Ontario. Le comité de programmation est particulièrement intéressé à recevoir des propositions d’artistes des Premières Nations, Métis et Inuit.
Nous lançons un appel à tous les conteurs autochtones!
Êtes-vous un conteur autochtone, ou connaîssez-vous quelqu’un qui l’est?
Le Comité Aviseur Autochtone des Conteurs du Canada a besoin de vous!
