Storytelling is a powerful human drive. We spend our existence living the story of our lives, reshaping and telling it to ourselves and others. We read and write stories to create and remember. We paint and film them, bringing to life the most beautiful and singular details of the human experience. Sometimes, we even cover our bodies with them. But what are stories for? Why do we tell them? Why is storytelling such an integral part of our brains?
The event will start with presentations by all three speakers above, and will be followed by a set of activities outside the auditorium, including book-crossing, storytelling sessions and interventions by projects involved in storytelling in the field.Entrance is free and subject to availability.
Live streaming will be available during the event.
