Event Description

Friday, 25 March 2022
11am-12pm
Online (zoom)

CreativeMornings is a global network of monthly gathering to promote and foster Victoria's creative community. The Victoria chapter is hosted by the Victoria Arts Council.

This month's theme is FOLKLORE and our guest speakers are Andrea Brimmell and Jennifer Ferris from the Victoria Storytellers' Guild.

Folklore uses oral tradition to pass the beliefs, customs and folktales of a community from one generation to another. Folktales reflect the past but are alive in the present. In this presentation we will explore how storytellers use folklore and folktales to engage audiences of all ages.

This is an online event via Zoom. You can register to receive the link here: https://creativemornings.com/talks/the-victoria-storytellers-guild-present-the-wisdom-and-magic-of-folklore

About the Speakers:
Andrea Brimmell is the Vice President of the Victoria Storytellers Guild. She started storytelling in her job at the Greater Victoria Public Library in 1993. The next year she took a storytelling workshop from Nejama Ferstman and Pat Carfra (founding members of the Guild). She was hooked! She told stories at the library, in schools and in the community. When she became a manager at the library in 2008, and no longer told stories to children, she gradually became involved with the Guild, and began telling stories for adults.

Victoria storyteller, Jennifer Ferris, has been active as a storyteller for more than 30 years. She has performed in schools, community events, senior’s facilities, nature sanctuaries as well as festivals in Canada and USA. Acutely aware of the power of humour and language, she engages audiences of all ages with stories of real life, the folk realm, myth, magic and transformation. She gives story workshops to adults, children, families and international ELL students. Participants find that her gentle approach and enthusiasm offers a safe environment to try new ideas.
