Oral storytelling workshop with Arthur Flowers

“Practitioners of the griotic in African American literature consider ourselves heirs to two literary traditions, the Western written and the African oral, telling stories in primal gatherings around the sacred fire and forging moments of grace, a sacred calling, page or stage, mythwork at the crossroads in a confluence of the transformative” – Arthur Flowers

Emerging and established storytellers can explore the role of the performer on page and stage with master storyteller and literary bluesman, Arthur Flowers. Arthur will demonstrate dramatic readings, share narrative innovation and share ideas on effective presentation and performance, the relationship between performer and audience, and the role of storytelling on stage and in text. As a point of reference, he will share his collaborative work with Manu Chitrakar, a painter from India working in the Patua tradition of scroll painting and singing. The two artists created a graphic novel ‘I See the Promised Land’ on the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

This event is FREE, with limited attendance. Please Register to confirm your attendance. This venue is wheelchair accessible, including bathrooms. For venue description and accessibility information: SFU Woodwards.
