Storytelling Project

May 29, 2021 Projects

Our storytelling cartographies workshop runs every Monday 12-2:00 today the ladies were expressing their migrant journeys onto t-shirts with one of our directors Geri. Recently we have been exploring colour in our sessions and the significance and meaning behind the colours we love and what they represent.

1-Participants from 4Wings’ Storytelling Cartographies project visited Edge Hill University to share stories about their migrant journeys. Was a successful, awareness raising & fun day out!

Storytelling cartographies shared a feast of stories today. What is it like to see a butterfly for the first time? Do flowers have a language and when is it insensitive to gift a flower? Also, the riches of what remains hidden for most people, more of the attractions and dangers of the desert, the personality of the camel and how we relate to the camel’s resilience, connection to the ground and the ability to store vital nutrients.

Storytelling cartographies this Saturday fascilitated interesting discussions: enforcing boundaries; making a distinction between internal and external authority; following advice that was imprisoning or following our intuition; being misguided by similarity and being guided by difference; medical vs social model of disability; collecting evidence from more than one source when making a decision; having the power to nurture ourselves, having a unique handprint – same but different!

Pictures from our creative workshop ‘Storytelling Cartographies’, 4Wings welcomes you to these sessions influenced by refugees and asylum seeking women. We meet every Saturday at 11am to tell stories through a range of artistic media. Meet new people in a creative environment every Saturday 11am-1:00pm (travel expenses paid).
