THE ART OF STORY.
It’s been around since the beginning of time. Pictures drawn on the walls of caves. Ancient manuscripts that tell the stories of those who came before us. Books, plays, music and visual art of times past and present – all tell the story of something, all invoke an emotion tangible to the audience.
And even in the rise of technological advances and social media, the art of story is on the rise today and takes on added forms. Story slams, podcasts, blog posts, mini-stories on Instagram feeds and the like.
HUMANITY LOVES STORY.
Story is a place to feel, create and express. A place to be heard. A place to be pricked at the core. It connects individuals and provides a non-threatening learning ground. It’s a level playing field, a space where anyone can find belonging.
This beautiful month of MAY holds story at the core.
We’ll be looking at various art forms and their abilities to tell a story. We’ll be highlighting artists weekly whose stories are told through their creative capacities. And we’ve got lots of fresh content from authors ready to wow ya!
WORD. SONG. VIDEO. PAINT. DANCE. All hold a story in the creator’s hand.
May we be open to sharing, to connecting with others by the beauty and vulnerability of our stories…to being a pen in the Creator’s hand.
P.S. A HUGE sweepstakes is in store – stay tuned for more!
