Storytellers of Canada- Conteurs du Canada

The Honour of One is the Honour of All - L'honneur de l'un est l'honneur de tous

 The 2018 Storytellers of Canada- Conteurs du Canada (SC-CC) conference theme will involve storytellers and listeners learning and sharing how to strengthen the art of oral storytelling from a variety of applications, techniques and approaches using oral tradition. We are seeking proposals from experienced, professional storytellers for the upcoming SC-CC Conference 2018 (July 4 to July 8) in Peterborough, Ontario. The Program Committee is particularly interested in proposals from First Nations, Métis and Inuit artists. 

Artist: Alice Olsen Williams', (Curve Lake First Nation, Ontario) session will involve a presentation of the artist's story of her Anishinaabe life and influence in her growth as a quilter. There will be discussion with question and answer behind the process to support stories being shared through a textile craft such as quilting. Participants will learn why The Kawartha Truth and Reconciliation Support Group (KTRSG) formed and how different stories in each quilt square were contributed in the KTRSG Quilt project. This very special quilt will be on display in the session and throughout conference
