Event description

Description

This workshop engages participants to discover identity through the use of storytelling and protocols that exist with Indigenous storytelling concepts. I share my own experiences with discovery of storytelling and in-depth view of how storytelling has shaped my spoken word poetry. How both art forms compliment each other and strengthen each other. I also discuss the necessity of having spoken word available to Indigenous communities and how both practices are reflective of each other. The main ingredient to this is the oral tradition and once a participant starts to discover their own processes into writing, they empower themselves and build a sense of pride and ownership. This workshop bridges understanding through the Spoken Word scene community and all communities that practice storytelling.
