Mouthpiece Storytelling has received an Arts, Culture & Heritage Fund Grant from the City of Windsor to help cover the costs of our Master Mouth-Off event!
HA-TO-THE-ZAH! We’re thrilled to be recipients of this grant, as it’s also the grant that started OUR OWN STORY! We received an ACHF grant in 2015 for our kick-off Mouthpiece Storytelling event!
THANK YOU ACHF JURORS AND THE CITY OF WINDSOR’S CULTURE DEPARTMENT!!
Thank you to the Windsor Star, writer Beatrice Fantoni and photographer Tyler Brownbridge, for this incredible article on Mouth Piece Storytelling!

It was a wonderful process from start to finish! And we had some good laughs, Tyler and I, when he came to the house to take a photo. There were four kids, the dog and, ahem, absolutely no blank walls! We made it work! As silly as it feels to be in front of the camera (mama’s favourite is behind it!), Tyler snapped a sweet shot.
Thank you Windsor Star for covering local news – and helping cultivate this much-needed oral tradition!
We are thrilled to announce that Mouth Piece Storytelling is the recipient of an Arts, Culture & Heritage Grant, offered by the City of Windsor’s Culture Department! We put loads of time and effort into the grant application in hopes that we would get some financial help for our Kick-Off Mouth-Off event – and we did!
Thank you so much ACHF team and the City of Windsor!
The official Press Release…
Storytellers! Are you preparing your book-themed stories? Our Kick-Off Mouth-Off storytelling event is but two weeks away! We look forward to starting this culturally cultivating storytelling series in Windsor.
We’ll see you at Villains Beastro (256 Pelissier) on Friday, June 12, 2015. Doors open at 6:30pm. Sign-up starts at 7pm, and storytelling begins at 7:30pm.
Shannon Cason, professional storyteller and comedic genius, will lead our storytelling, followed by 10 local storytellers. If you want to be one of the storytellers, you MUST fill out our form so we can put it in the basket and test your luck!
There will be a brief intermission after the first 5 storytellers. Each storyteller has 5 minutes to tell her story. No reading! No memorizing! And the story MUST BE TRUE!

Yes, this is FREE EVENT and will continue to be a FREE EVENT because we at Mouth Piece believe that the oral tradition of storytelling is a given. We should be sharing stories with each other as often as possible. We’re here to foster this gift we can give to each other.
Of course, we couldn’t do this without our local supporters!
Each Mouth Piece event will take donations for the Raise A Reader program. Please bring in gently-used or new books – any genre, and we will promptly get them to the team!
As an added Kick-Off bonus, DJ Cam (was the DJ at Oishi back in the day!) will be spinning sick beats in between stories, during intermission, and after the Master Mouth Piece winner is announced. So prepare to stay and dance all night!
