Story Telling Workshop With Mandi Kujawa
Come and discover the joy of sharing information, and your own enthusiasm regarding nature, in succinct and powerful ways. In simple exercises, Mandi helps to introduce storytelling techniques that are the foundation of interpretive work.
Excerpts from past storytelling workshop evaluations (Parks Canada interpreters):
"I liked you mentioning that presenters do not all have to be the same. It gave me great comfort, as I am not a boisterous person."
"It's my first year as a student interp and I'm feeling a bit nervous. With your workshop, I gained confidence and now I'm sure I can do it. It will take lots of work, but I can make it."
"You were very encouraging and enthusiastic which helped me feel more comfortable doing the exercises."
Mandi Kujawa is a storyteller, interpreter, and musician who has performed at such venues as The Canmore Folk Festival, the Golden Festival of Birds and Bears, and in Banff, Jasper, and Yoho national park theatres. Her children's book Jacqueline the Singing Crow was published in 2015.
For the past 10 years Mandi has used her storytelling and music to deliver a suicide-intervention program in conjunction with Alberta Mental Health and Bow Valley Victim Services. She has co-facilitated numerous workshops with master storyteller Jay O'Callahan (Marshfield, USA).
In January she participated in a Banff Centre music residency.
