Sami Storytelling and Joiku Chanting Workshop

Part of Imagine Children's Festival

Come and hear all about the characters of Sami mythology with writer Ante Aikio who joins us from Finnish Lapland to describe and tell stories about the sacred spaces from Sami mythology, such as the amazing Saivo lakes and Seita rocks.

Ante is also a joiku chanter and during the workshop he teaches the children (and adults) how to join in the chants with him.

Part-storytelling, part-participatory performance, this workshop is an exciting celebration of Sami culture.
