The Sunshine Coast Festival of the Written Arts is excited to announce its 35th Anniversary gift to the community: WordPlay in the Park, a free storytelling celebration for all ages.
WordPlay in the Park will take place in the Festival Pavilion at the Rockwood Centre in Sechelt on Sunday, June 25, beginning at 11 am. Performers include Kung Jaadee, an accomplished Haida storyteller who performed in our Aboriginal Storytelling Festival in 2014; award-winning singer/songwriter/storyteller Rick Scott who combines music, stories and wacky humour in his concerts for all ages; and renowned spoken word artists Jillian Christmas and Ronnie Dean Harris (aka Ostwelve) who have performed around the world and right here on the Sunshine Coast, at the Festival and in our schools.
More details to come! We thank the BC Arts Council (Youth Engagement Program) for their support of this event.
