Story Rebels: A new type of hero

story makers

Celebrating the power of story to help us develop different ‘ways of seeing’ ourselves and others, our festival brings together creative story makers from across the city: young people, parents, grandparents, educators, artists, mental health experts, museums, drama and theatre specialists, artists and authors. Artists will come from across the region to create, perform and share their stories as well as making stories together on the day using spoken word, creative writing, film, drama and theatre. Rebels will come from different spaces: museums, schools, community centres, bedrooms and perhaps even other worlds! Through imaginary adventures, we will explore the potential of stories to develop our capacity for kindness, empathy and compassion as well as cultivating positive well being. Make your voice heard.

Creative artists:

  • Come and experience the power of making and sharing stories through different art forms
