January 20, 2019 Collab Salon: The poetry and art of narrative practice

Problem stories are not equal. Some stories dirty and mar persons’ identities and these stories seem to have a particularly gripping effect in their lives. In the face of such marring and gripping problems stories, not just any story will do. We need to tell stories in our work that powerfully counter the damaging effects of gripping problem stories through practices that seek out the restorative power of beauty. Sanni and Tom shares some of the recent developments in their work that seek to restore the beauty and dignity of persons lives through the use of poetry, art, and performance.
