Duration: 1.5 hours

For countless generations, First Nations Peoples have passed down story through voice and song. Story is connected to Country, to Ancestors, and embedded in place. Story is First Nations Peoples’ way of learning, knowing and teaching.

In this workshop, Rob will show participants how we are able to connect with the timeless art of storytelling in new ways. He will help you translate your written work into spoken word poetry, develop your voice and unlock the potential for story to be used as a tool for social change.

Workshops are designed for ages 18+ and are open to all backgrounds and experience levels. Materials will be provided.

Indigenous Literacy Day is an advocacy program of the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. If you would like to learn how you can support the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, find out more here.
