WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF STORYTELLING?
AUG 13TH: PAUL NELSON, POET, WILL HOST DISCUSSION ON THE FUTURE OF STORYTELLING.
"In an age of unprecedented instability, with the climate system and capitalism showing signs of breakdown, how to we navigate the challenges inherent in life today? What is the story of our age?
The poet/prophet William Blake knew that luminous details are at the core of all true storytelling and the internet and its capacity for spreading the news virally around the planet make our time potent for narratives that ring true with our massive economic disparity, issues of violence, race, gender and orientation and ecological uncertainty.
A panel of five artists who all approach narrative from widely different perspectives will give a
short talk and discuss how they see the ancient art of storytelling evolving to communicate something deeper than the industry-generated culture to meet the deep needs of 21st century dwellers."
