    Bernice Gei-Ying Hune

    Telling Tales From Gold Mountain

    Born in Toronto, Bernice Hune retells folklore from China and creates new stories from Canada’s recent past.  She recalls elders speaking in Cantonese about the Head Tax, the Chinese Exclusion Act and their determination for social justice. Bernice shares this legacy of stories in performance. Fresh from university, she performed as an actor, and then co-hosted a CBC radio program. Her work in education as a visual artist and an arts educator is widely recognized, and it informs her storytelling.

    Njacko Backo

    The World Beyond My Village

    Starting from a very young age, Njacko Backo has been curious about the world. He was born into a musical family in a rural village in Cameroon, well isolated from the rest of the world. Despite grave warnings from his family that he would be eaten by cannibals, he was inspired to leave home at the age of 17 to explore, play music, and find his way to Europe. 15 years later, he arrived in Canada with a young family and has built a career as an award-winning professional musician and cultural ambassador for school-aged children in the GTA and beyond.

    Wise Fools - World Storytelling Day

    2 p.m.

    Faith United Church 1778 Nash Rd, Courtice, ON (all ages),

    For 2018, the theme is Wise Fools. With Durham Storytellers.

    Stories with this theme aim to inspire those who may not believe in their own innate wisdom, and show them that they have the ability to change their self-belief. And of course some tales will simply add humour and chuckles to our day, while the noodles, jesters and the foolish of the foolish surprise us with their natural instinctive wisdom!
