Our Beloved Storyteller and Patios Teacher, Dr. Amina Blackwood Meeks, joins us to highlight Ananse Soundsplash – a list of events leading up to National Storytelling Day 2023 – and to teach us how to properly tell stories in Patios.

Ananse SoundSplash is dedicated to establishing links with oral arts practitioners from diverse cultures who share the vision of the oral tradition beyond its entertainment value. 

The 2023 staging of Ananse SoundSplash Storytelling Festival and Conference, will exuberantly locate itself within sustainable economic and social growth by celebrating stories of first peoples of Jamaica. It will also highlight how we honour the aspirations and accomplishments of people, by putting their needs first.
