Networks of Solidarity – Through Our Stories

Through Our Stories is the third of a series of four online talks co-organised by artist/organiser Kate O’Shea and writer/researcher Enya Moore from the Just City Collective. It will take place on Tuesday 6th July at 10 – 11.30AM Dublin (IST), 7 – 8.30PM Sydney (AEST). Booking is through Eventbrite.

Through our Stories explores the value of storytelling in communicating shared beliefs and cultural knowledge as well as articulating shared struggle and trauma. The talk explores storytelling, through film, images, dance, and language, as an important way of countering dominant and oftentimes exclusionary narratives. This event encompasses the diversity in storytelling practices including Indigenous storywork, truth-telling and language activism.

The guest speakers are Jason De Santolo (Garrwa and Barunggam, researcher and creative producer), Oein DeBhairduin (author, activist), Amala Groom (Wiradyuri conceptual artist), Alessandra Azevedo and Karen Aguiar (Go Dance For Change)
