How do images lead to stories? And how do stories convey images? In this workshop, we will explore the stories that pictures of oceanic life and sites of environmental transformation tell, and the images that stories summon. Together, we’ll write and enact one and many stories, thinking about how tales are told, inventing new ways of combining memory with discovery and imagination, and discussing the ways in which we share experiences, visions, and emotions with others.
Designed for children aged 7-12.
