Page One will host a gathering of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to share storytelling and performances to talk about how the culture in Newfoundland was repressed and is now being rediscovered and honoured since the Qalipu band has been formed. Younger and older people will meet to celebrate with food, stories and music. Admission will be free and all are welcome although we will require RSVP’s in order to prepare for the event.

Organized by

Page One

Page One supports writers, artists, actors and musicians with intra-cultural creative events and projects. Literacy promotion is also important. Through accessible inter-generational meetings, events, workshops, community festivals, our annual Summer Voices event (which incorporates author readings, book sales, an art gallery and musicians), school visits, Open Mic's, book launches, and has published anthologies and books by individual authors, Page One plays a part in both creating and preserving local voices. Members come from all walks of life and include amateur and professional creators. Participants in events and special projects range in age from children to seniors. For example, our anthology, Page One Digest 2, Gathering Words, 30 Years of Creativity, included stories and essays aged six to ninety-three. New Horizons helped to make this book possible. It has been included in public and school libraries, senior home collections, and sales have helped to fund other events that continue to be all inclusive to all genders, all ages, and all social classes. Page One operates by consensus whenever possible, by majority when necessary. The structure and membership of the group are adaptable and flexible. Contributors to an anthology may never come to a meeting. Yet they go on record as members of Page One.
