STORYTELLING, NARRATIVE AND ART FORM

STORYTELLING, NARRATIVE AND ART FORM

Presented by City of Yarra

About the event

Join a diverse group of artists for an evening of conversation about the power of storytelling through different art forms.

Storytelling is everywhere; in our local podcasts, projecting from the stage in the form of spoken word, cabaret or dance, and in the wisdom of our elders. It’s in the comic images of graphic novels, in photographic essays, in our Instagram feeds and on the streets.

Storytelling can be a powerful way of building understanding among people, across cultures, across generations. Stories, true and fictional, hold a special power – calling upon the imagination of both the teller and receiver. Stories also give weight to a particular narrative.

Through other people’s stories, we may learn about ways of living which are different from our own, or imagine alternative futures or histories.

Yarra City Arts presents an evening of conversation about the power of storytelling through different art forms, and the morals and ethics associated with telling stories.

Hosted by writer and curator Andy Butler, hear from a panel of artists including Clinton Naina, Amy Spiers, Kirsten Lyttle, Mama Alto and Stéphanie Kabanyana Kanyandekwe about how they use a range of art forms from performance, photography, weaving, painting, musical scores to socially engaged art practice - to translate, interpret and tell specific stories.
