About Story: Ups and Downs of Story-Based Work
July 16, 2021
In the seventh episode of A Culture of Possibility, Arlene Goldbard and François Matarasso talk about the explosion of story-based work in community and participatory arts and what it all means.
Antecedents include the women’s movement and the civil rights movement, and examples include a 360-degree view of the close of a psychiatric hospital to a national dialogue culminating in a “Poetic Address to the Nation.”
François and Arlene touch on the strengths of this practice, the ethical challenges, and the importance of having a clear intention.
