Annual Storytelling Event – Telling Our Stories
Telling Our Stories Celebration is a half-day or day long storytelling event featuring storytellers and their stories with connections to Lake of Bays and Muskoka. Stories shared will be recorded and kept as part of a permanent, public cultural heritage legacy. Date of Event for fall of 2021 is still to be determined.
Whether storyteller or guest, we all feel a connection to the Lake of Bays and Muskoka areas. Through listening to stories told about this special land and its’ people, we will foster a stronger connection to each other and with this land and all life within it – the rivers and lakes, rocks and trees, and the people, plants and animals.
If you have a story with a connection to the Lake of Bays / Muskoka area and you would like to share it at this event, please email Write For Wellness to find out more details and to submit your story for consideration before the story submission deadline of August 31, 2021. Reading your story aloud to the audience will take you no longer than twenty minutes (about 2,500 words). We regret that depending on the number and the theme of the submissions, we may not be able to accommodate all stories in the gathering. If your story is not selected, please try again next year.
