The Storyteller’s Voice

Camp Director Bob Barton and voice specialist Cathy Nosaty share exercises to connect you to your voice, your imagination, and your sense of your audience.

Storytellers Camp Afternoon Workshops

Campers choose one workshop.

1) Indigenous Storytelling Traditions

Metis storyteller and oral historian Ron Evans takes participants on a journey deep into the world of oral tradition.

2) Thinking Like a Storyteller

New York-based storyteller Laura Simms explores the way unique qualities of engagement, perception, and moral understanding are embedded in stories. Opening to these aspects of our art illumines stories and gives us access to a richer more direct way of telling.

3) Tell Compelling True Stories

How do you tell your own stories, in a way that captivates your audience  – and feels comfortable to you? Leaders in the Toronto True Storytelling scene, Sage Tyrtle (High Stakes Storytelling) and Marsha Shandur (True Stories Told Live Toronto) use warmth, humour, and their deep understanding of the medium to show you how with step-by-step instructions. No storytelling experience necessary.
