Abstract or Description

An evening of storytelling from four artists who engage with non-fiction in their practice. Each of the invited artists responded to the theme of Horizons and shared a story with the audience in fifteen minutes. The speakers had complete creative freedom in how they interpreted the theme as well as how they delivered their story—it could be a personal anecdote, a poetry reading, a historical retelling or something more abstract entirely. When taken to mean the point where the earth meets the sky, a horizon always remains unreachable, receding further as you approach it. The evening looked towards expanding the scope of the possible, using the power of storytelling to offer fresh perspectives that reached beyond existing limits and traditional boundaries.

Speakers for this event were Ayesha Hameed, Miko Revereza, Roger Robinson and Zing Tsjeng.
