Event Details

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.

Camp themes for Day 3 include using humour to honour Indigenous Elders, exploring children’s games and rhythms, discovering the power of traditional tales in the era of wired communication, and using storytelling to build peaceful bridges in a fractured world.

9:00 AM–12:00 PM

Please note that Riding Rhythms, with ahdri zhina mandiela, has been replaced with a session on South African children’s games and songs, led by Gcina Mhlophe.   A knowledge of the rich world of children’s lore gives storytellers an appreciation of the power of the spoken word.

1:30 – 4:00 PM

Storytellers Camp Afternoon Workshops

Campers choose one workshop.

A storytelling exchange between two great tradition-keepers: South African teller Gcina Mhlophe and Metis oral historian and storyteller Ron Evans.

2) We Walk Each Other Home (part 2) 


Jamie Oliviero leads the second of a two-session workshop that explores the ways that stories can establish a sense of community, and create an atmosphere of peace. Through stories shared with accompanying activities, we will examine our role as storytelling activists using the power of stories to bring about positive change.
