There was a festival planning meeting this past weekend for our Spirit of Oklahoma Storytelling Festival in Seminole, this coming June, we have sorted out the details. The musical styling of Gary Parent and Kathy Thurman will start our concerts each night!
We have a workshop, storyswaps, story concerts, ghost tales, music and more June 7-8. We are looking for sponsorship donations to supplement the costs of the festival. We have had three members jump on board thus far with our printing and advertising costs. A shout out goes to Valerie Kimble, Elizabeth Ellis and Chester Weems – our flyers are on their way this weekend to the Texas festival, and an advertisement isin the Texas festival handout for us.
We are looking for Friday night sponsorship for our spotlight concert and ghost tales sessions. We also are looking for monies to supplement the events on Saturday. Please think about your partnership with storytelling, and help make our festival a success this year.
At the recent board meeting of the organization leadership heard reports about the festival concluded at the first of June. All reports indicated another year of introducing and enjoying storytellers to artisans at all levels of development. Outstanding national, regional and local artists contributed to the concerts, workshops, and story swap sessions.
