Storytelling and Performance Workshop

Ottawa Storytellers logo

In a creative and supportive environment, each young person will have the opportunity to explore, learn and develop a personal style of storytelling. Story selection, methods of learning a story, receiving and offering helpful feedback, comfort level in front of an audience, and storytelling performance skills are all important components of the workshop. At the last workshop, the storytellers will tell a story to an audience of family and friends.

The facilitators are members of Ottawa Storytellers and co-ordinators of the Children’s Storytelling Festival.
