We are excited to invite a number of international festival directors to ArtWells this year! This round table is a chance to share festival ideas from across the globe. Collaboration isn’t just great in music, it’s also great for organizers. All festival directors and organizers are welcome!
Becoming, is a storytelling session with Indigenous creatives, Madeline Terbasket, the Snotty Nose Res Kids, and S.M. Steele. In her new opera,Â LiÂ Keur:Â Riel’s Heart of the North, Steele writes aÂ becomingÂ story of the peoples in her opera,Â lii Michif.Â Note, this isÂ notÂ a creation story based on the cultural provenance of peoples (hers and other cultures). This session looks at theÂ becomingÂ story, and challenges participants to listen, scribe, tell their ownÂ becomingÂ stories, and challenge cultural assumptions.
