Community Engagement through Story: The ELEMENTAL initiative
The performance artist and executive director of the Vancouver Society of Storytelling will lead a dialogue on her ELEMENTAL initiative, which uses stories about the elements as the access point for an intergenerational story-share and workshop series.
During ELEMENTAL: earth extracts from community stories will be represented in a cob ‘storytellers’ bench’ to be built in Robson Park (13th and Kingsway). This site is an important geographic locater as it is part of a watershed from which St. George Creek flows towards the False Creek Flats, networking with many other underground streams along the way. The bench is in support of community groups who have been working towards day-lighting the creek. (http://www.naomi-eliana.ca/ ) (http://www.vancouverstorytelling.org/ )
