Overview

The Indigenous Storytellers and Spoken Word Residency will push the parameters of traditional storytelling, while retaining the integrity of how stories come to be. Participants will be immersed in in-depth writing practices involving visual, research, and meditative exploration, as well as elder teaching and land based outings. 

With coaching from experienced faculty, participants will collaborate with one another and as a collective to refine stories already told and create new ones to share in a professional capacity.

What does the program offer?

The Indigenous Storytellers and Spoken Word Residency offers the opportunity for Indigenous storytellers from all regions to meet and work with peers. Participants will learn new skills from Indigenous mentors in their respective fields, widen their circles of support, and learn marketing management and presentation skills.

The program will include individual writing time, morning group check-ins, and group and individual feedback. Participants will explore the art of storytelling via improvisation through sound and instrument.

Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a workshop, as well as a story lecture and mini showcase. At the end of the residency, participants will showcase their work in a public performance.

Who should apply?

Indigenous writers, storytellers, and spoken word artists are encouraged to apply. Those who work from a word based practice, traditional or contemporary non-text based storytelling, and singer/songwriters with storytelling experience are also invited.

This residency is for emerging to mid-level storytellers. A maximum of 12 participants will be accepted. Indigenous language speakers are also encouraged to apply.
