CHANGING IDENTITY NARRATIVES THROUGH CREATIVITY
How can we use art to claim our stories?
How can we break down barriers of difference?
How does art develop stronger communication and understanding?
The narrative arts are routinely defunded, and this devaluing of creative disciplines is creating a vacuum of empathy. We are in contact with others now more than ever before. People from all over the world. People who are different than others we have encountered, people who we may not think we can relate to.
Using narrative art (creative storytelling), we can strengthen both our interpersonal relationships and personal stories. With art, we can put our own narratives into the world – and learn to listen to the narratives of others.
