About the Show
Storytelling can be a powerful way of building understanding among people, across cultures and even across generations. Stories, true and fictional, hold a special power – calling upon the imagination of both the teller and receiver.
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 ethics associated with telling stories. Join a diverse group of artists for an evening of conversation about the power of storytelling through different art forms.
Hosted by writer and curator Andy Butler, hear from artists Clinton Naina, Amy Spiers, Kirsten Lyttle, Mama Alto and Stéphanie Kabanyana Kanyandekwe about how they use various art forms from performance, photography, weaving, painting, musical scores to socially engaged art practice – to translate, interpret and tell specific stories.
