Becoming: A Storytelling Session

Becoming, is a storytelling session with Indigenous creatives, Madeline Terbasket, the Snotty Nose Res Kids, and S.M. Steele. In her new opera, Li Keur: Riel’s Heart of the North, Steele writes a becoming story of the peoples in her opera, lii Michif. Note, this is not a creation story based on the cultural provenance of peoples (hers and other cultures). This session looks at the becoming story, and challenges participants to listen, scribe, tell their own becoming stories, and challenge cultural assumptions.

Connor’s passion for visual story telling has its roots buried in the landscapes that he visits. Drawing on local colour he composes his paintings to incorporate his internal emotions with the lands. It is that dance between the internal and external where Connor finds his balance.
