Storytelling as Embodied Literacy with The Ngoma Griots and Parkdale Project Read

4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

Learn how African drumming and storytelling can engage adult literacy learners and community members. Explore rhythm activities and oral storytelling techniques that make connections between language and culture.

This program will demonstrate how we learn at Parkdale Project Read—we play, we collaborate, and we learn together in a supportive community.

Please join us in honouring the legacy of our founder, Dr. Rita Cox, who has mentored generations of storytellers to continue the tradition of oral storytelling as a form of embodied literacy.
