The day includes a mix of performances and workshops on topics like intergenerational storytelling, storytelling for community-building, First Nations perspectives, humour, the Baycrest approach to Storycare, best practices for storytellers working with seniors, and much more.  Presenters include Celia Barker Lottridge, Itah Sadu, Louise Profeit-Leblanc, Marylyn Peringer, Lynda Howes, Jim Rennie, Lorne Brown, Calogero Chiarelli, Dan Yashinsky, Dinny Biggs, Village of Storytellers: Regent Park, and Melissa Tafler.
