Wherever manidoons has presented bug, we strive to connect with Indigenous youth in the community with our youth storytelling workshop. We have led a total of three workshops on Turtle Island, two in the Coast Salish territory and one in Tkaron:to. We look forward to connect with Treaty 7 Indigenous youth in January 2019.

Indigenous Youth (16 - 25) will have the opportunity to participate in a storytelling workshop led by Yolanda Bonnell (Ojibwe - South Asian) and Ashley Bomberry (Mohawk). The workshop includes warm ups, discovering the different ways a story can be told (body/movement, writing, song, or combination). Participants will find the path that suits them best and will create a 5-minute piece of theatre that will tell a specific creation story.

Participants will then have the opportunity to perform their piece in front of an audience as a prologue to Yolanda’s performance of bug at the presentation. This is not mandatory. It’s important that participants feel comfortable and that the primary goal is that they are gaining new theatrical/storytelling skills. Participants can also attend the performance with family/friends as audience members.The workshop is FREE to participate (note the capacity is 10 participants, registering in advance is recommended).
