Event description

Description

Storytellers Camp is an intensive journey deep into the traditions and contemporary expressions of storytelling. The faculty, led by Camp Director Bob Barton, includes many of the festival’s national and international storytellers. Please see the Day 1 Schedule below.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Please email festivaloperations@storytellingtoronto.org if you have any questions about tickets.



Day 1 Schedule:

9:30 AM - 11:30 AM: Words and Movement

Camp Director Bob Barton opens with community building through storytelling. Dancer/choreographer Michelle Silagy leads us into a world where spoken word, music, and movement align. Storytellers explore ways to embody and celebrate their stories.

12:00 PM -1:15 PM: International Storytalk - Global Activism and Storytelling

Donald Smith, Director of the Scottish International Storytelling Festival, talks about the Global Gathering of Storytelling Activists working with The Earth Charter, and how traditional stories hold the key to our survival on this planet.

1:30 PM -3:30 PM: Storytellers Camp Afternoon Workshops

Campers choose one workshop:

  1. Ron Evans and Seoras Macpherson - Storytelling Traditions: Two tradition-bearers share the resonance of the stories and traditions they carry. This is an opportunity to experience and discuss the stories that are called forth, rather than a “workshop.”
  2. Marsha Shandur and Sage Tyrtle - Tell Compelling True Stories: How do you tell your own stories, in a way that captivates your audience – and feels comfortable to you? Led by Sage Tyrtle (Plundercats – true stories hijacked by Toronto's best comedians) and Marsha Shandur (True Stories Told Live Toronto).
  3. Sharon Shorty - Honouring the Elders with Humour: Sharon takes us into the world of Gramma Susie, an irrepressible Yukon elder who offers a wry and hilarious commentary on modern life from the perspective of traditional Yukon wisdom.
