TALKING STICK FESTIVAL 2021: WRITE ON! WITH HERBIE BARNES

A writing workshop for Indigenous youth age 14-18!

About this Event:

Young Indigenous writers will be challenged to take their writing from page to the 'stage' in 24 hours. Herbie Barnes will guide young writers through a series of energizing and fun story-making and playwriting exercises designed to ignite their creative spark. Over the two day workshop, participants will gain insight into the craft of storytelling and playwriting and gain tools to honour their imaginations. Writers will also workshop their stories, monologues, or scenes with a crew of professional actors. This is a great opportunity for new writers to meet other young Indigenous writers, share ideas, and hear their work aloud.

WHEN? Friday April 30th from 3:30PM-6:30PM PST AND Saturday May 1 from 1PM - 4:30PM PST

WHAT? You'll need something to write on - a notebook and pencil, or a laptop.

WHAT ELSE? Participants will be given a $100 honorarium for their participation.
