Collaborate and Listen: free discussion, Q&A and networking event at The Scottish Storytelling Centre
What: A chance to hear about the collaborative storytelling residency and performance Where I Stand: A New Conversation before it’s Edinburgh debut within TradFest. (Followed by an open forum, Q&A and networking opportunity)
Where I Stand: A New Conversation is a performance that has been shaped by a collaborative storytelling residency consisting of two artists from Mumbai and two from Scotland. The performance merges music and storytelling to reflect on the connections, differences and influences that link the two countries.
At the heart of the performance are themes that are relevant to our current political environment; combining traditional Celtic tales of war and love with contemporary stories of displacement, land and community. This performance reminds us that stories and music can connect and divide us but ultimately, provide an opportunity for us to learn from one another and converse in new ways.
Come along to meet the artists, discuss the themes and debate on how art can be a vehicle that addresses topics such as displacement in communities, traditions in contemporary life and the important role of storytelling in connecting us all.
