Mosaic Storytelling Festival
Last Date: Mar 23
St. David's Anglican Church, parish hall (Opposite Donlands subway station)

The Open Door East End Arts Collective and St. David's Anglican Church celebrate the diversity and creativity of our rich East End neighbourhood - and our world - through five afternoons of storytelling with tellers and tales from all across the globe. The last session features Aubrey Davis, and his bottomless yarns that wonder if god eats bagels or can a button save a town?
