Write Out Loud at the Lyric Theatre, March 15, 2017

Written by 

Write Out Loud hosted two award-winning artists and storytellers from Val Marie at the Lyric Theatre in Swift Current, March 15. Madonna Hamel has produced award-winning radio documentaries for the CBC, her one-woman monologues have been performed around North America, and her art installation My Mother's Apron, which was on show last summer at the Prairie Wind and Silver Sage Ecomuseum in Val Marie, has been extended for another season. Her series of vignettes, My Sister's Apron, will be performed in Regina in April. Interdisciplinary artist Joseph Naytowhow has produced traditional and contemporary stories and songs that have been recorded and performed nationally and internationally. His passion for sharing cultural knowledge has made him a sought after speaker, performer and educator, he has been working with various university education departments on cultural research projects, and he recently completed a short book of fiction based on his residential school experience. The two artists have met in Val Marie and they have been cooperating on a storytelling event that took place at the Prairie Community Centre in Val Marie, March 18. The next event in the Write Out Loud series will feature poet Linda Monahan on April 19 at 7 p.m. at the Lyric Theatre.
