Storytelling is an important oral art form. Storytellers tell stories. We do not read from books or notes. There are storytelling groups across Canada and many members of these groups are members of the Storytellers of Canada – Conteurs du Canada (SC-CC.) The Victoria Storytellers Guild was proud to host the annual conference of SC-CC in 2009.
Our guild has approximately 50 members. There is a core group of 12 volunteers who do most of the organizational work. All members are encouraged to help and many step forward to assist with our events. Our primary focus is getting together to tell stories once a month. Some come to tell, others to listen. Both members and the general public are welcome with often over 40 people in attendance.
