Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

Stories in Transit considers ways the creation and transmission of stories can be supported and encouraged in communities of people who have been displaced, and in the second part of ‘Ways of Telling’ we showcase materials from workshops spanning the whole stretch of the project. This second display includes: props, masks and creatures created to accompany the stories of Numu, Amadou and Dine of Giocherenda, amongst other stories developed and generated over the years; a rostrum designed by Lee Shearman with a light box and some cut-outs re-created by Joan Ashworth, demonstrating the stop-motion animation process; a monitor on loop sharing the animation WIP of Dine's Matryoshka-like story 'The Huntsman, his Wife and the Magical Deer'; photos from 2017 onwards; Giocherenda games including their Wheel of Wishes.
