Storyteller

Children's Discovery Museum, Saskatoon
Deadline: August 09, 2018 - August 17, 2018

Deadline

August 17, 2018

The Nutrien Children’s Discovery Museum (CDM) is currently seeking storytellers to participate in a nine session StoryScapes – How We Tell Stories Program for Fall 2018 / Winter 2019.

The Program

StoryScapes is a nine session program developed by the CDM to engage children ages 3-12 years through a variety of storytelling methods. The intent of this program is inspire children to look beyond the book when learning or telling stories. Some examples of storytelling that we are looking for, but are not limited to, are music, song, dance, spoken word, visual arts, technology and traditions. Each session, a new method of storytelling will be introduced to participants through pre-registered/drop in sessions.

The program sessions will take place at both the museum and external community centre. This enables the museum and story tellers to offer the program throughout the community in closer neighborhoods for participants. All sessions are designed to present an interesting and enjoyable experience that encourage participants to be curious and creative in with their own self-expression.

Storytellers

CDM hopes to present nine different storytellers throughout this program. We are seeking participation from Saskatoon based artists who can lead a session demonstrating a form of storytelling. Interested storytellers must have experience working with children of varying ages and ability to engage with parents. Each storyteller will present one session (if you are available to host two sessions with different content please express in your response).

Storytellers will be compensated for a half-day session of 3hrs ($304 rate set by CARFAC), and provided with a materials / supplies allowance to a maximum of $100 per session.

If you are interested in being considered for this project please complete the application form on our website and return to the Children’s Discovery Museum no later than Wednesday August 22nd, 2018 by 4:00pm.

Applications can be emailed to michelle.mcmillan@museumforkids.sk.ca.
