The Festival is fast approaching, and I'm keeping very busy with
all the necessary preparations. Today I visited Saint Brigid's
and was very impressed with all the rennovations that have taken
place there since my last visit early in the summer. The downstairs
performance space which we will use for our concerts has been
rennovated to showcase the stage and the stone walls that give
it an old world charm. There's also a new lobby area with cabaret
style tables, where we will have our morning workshops. The whole
place has a very charming feel, and I can't wait to see our storytellers
All of the pieces are falling into place as we book flights,
obtain licenses, put the last touches on the program and launch
our new publicity materials. It's incredibly exciting to see everything
coming together after all the work that myself and the Festival
Committee have poured into the planning. I really hope that you
are excited to come to the Festival and see the product of our
work - I know I am! This Festival may be a bit different than
our first 20, but it is still a celebration of storytelling, and
that is what brings us all together. We really need your support
to make the Ottawa Storytelling Festival a success.
If you are interested in being involved in any way in the coming
weeks, please let me know. You can email me at email@example.com.
I'll be looking for some helpers to be a part of my Super Fantastic
Poster Squad in October, so give me a shout to get your very own
stack of posters for distribution!
If you want to volunteer during the Festival itself, contact
Kim Kilpatrick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As for tickets, you still have a couple of days to send your
special member mail order form to me, or you can purchase tickets
online. More information about tickets, the program, and everything
