The best part about organizing your own festival is meeting all of the amazing people that agree to lend their skills and talents to the mix. We are going to have so many gifted storytellers at Shiny Kids this year.
For Naomi Steinberg, connecting with four year olds is as marvelous and unique an experience as connecting with 84 year olds – both are possible through storytelling. The past 13 years of her life have been closely focused on community engagement and performance and in her own words “to be a storyteller, first you have to be a story-listener”.
In her current role as Executive Director of the Vancouver Society of Storytelling (VSOS), Naomi intends to foster an appreciation of the art in all of its aspects and applications for audiences of all sorts!
Check out this great video of Naomi taking her stories around the globe.
