ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A STORYTELLING ADVENTURE IN HAWAII? July 2013


CALLING ALL STORYTELLERS
       ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A STORYTELLING
       ADVENTURE IN HAWAII THIS SUMMER?

YES? We would LOVE to include visiting mainland storytellers in our 3rd Annual Talk Story Camp (right on the edge of Windward Oahu).  Come as a camper, or apply as a featured guest performer/teacher and contribute. Either way,         You’ll never see and hear Hawaii like this again!
It’s now a fact- it WILL happen! I am sharing this fact with you and invite you to plan to attend.

    A narrative & photos from last year at  www.talkstorycamp.com

So What’s Camp Cost? Dunno yet, but it’ll be cheap to attend. And we will organize excursions before & after as well,
EXAMPLE: We’ll  likely do a group Spooky Tales Show at Kailua Park for TEENS on Monday, July 22, 6-8:30pm
We will take guests to local museums if visitors are interested. Polynesian Culture Center is nearby. We also visited local farms one year and hiked. We arranged performances in Summer Fun Programs one year too. There are Bed & Breakfasts nearby, and Waikiki is 30-45 minutes away for those who don’t enjoy the thought of beachfront camping.

Structure: I don’t know (yet exactly), but it will mix a choice of organized sessions (adults and for kids)(story with crafts, story learning, story swaps, local and visiting talents) with common meals, Imu (stone cooked dinner) dinner Saturday night, canoe rides each day, and free time (swim!). We do have families as well as storytelling enthusiasts. So if you want to add your name to the talent pool for this programming, let me know!

Want to be considered as a Featured Guest Teller/Teacher? If you want to offer a workshop, have a specialty (storytelling or puppetry or story craft or nature walk)(kids and or kid/adults andor for adults) tell me about it. Speak up.
Send me to a website, YouTube, whatever you have to introduce me to your work and tell me what you want to offer.
We pay featured performers what we can: a gorgeous long weekend on the beach, with local talents and families in
a camp right on the beach where we ‘talk story’. We can cover your camp and food at camp and some of your on-island transport and possibly some housing before & after, OK? Bring your own tent if you can.
Basically, fly yourself here and we’ll help with the rest.
For Both of the past two years our Featured Guest Tellers were Gene Tagaban, Lyn Ford, Linda Yemoto

So just send me a note on what you are thinking. More details will be shared with those expressing interest.
Speak up and let me know you are curious/interested/enthusiastic and pack you swimsuit!
Aloha,
Jeff Gere
