In its eighth year at PVCC, Festival of Tales brings books to life through the art of storytelling and provides FREE books to children who participate in the activities. PVCC’s Art of Storytelling classes, Education Program, the Divison of Fine & Performing Arts, and the Commercial Music Program present this free event for children in the community. Storytelling sessions are at 10 am, 11:30 am, and 1 pm. In addition, PVCC’s Partners in Art Club will provide demonstrations of pottery making and clay sculpting, and Bricks4kidz.com will provide LEGO buidling stations that focus on STEM principles (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

The festival also features live musical performances by Heidi Swedberg and the Sukey Jump Band (children’s music), PVCC student music ensembles, Benchmark School Show Choir, Valley Academy Choir and much more!

Blending Native American Culture and Gaming

Kudos to the Cook Inlet Tribal Council (CITC) — a nonprofit community support organization for Alaska Natives and their families for the development of a video game that celebrates and modernizes the traditions of cultural storytelling.
