Fireside Stories - Artists
FIRESIDE STORIES PROGRAM NOTE
Welcome back to Dancing Sky after an unusual few months. We are very excited to be exploring new territory with this project, and to be creating new ways that we can safely gather together again to share a communal artistic experience.
Like music, dancing and language, stories are a universal human phenomenon. Every human culture, all across our planet tells and shares stories with each other. We tell babies stories before they can speak. Every day we tell our friends stories about things that have happened to us. We also communicate our deepest truths in stories. Most of the world’s sacred texts are not “how to” books, they are collections of stories. There is something profound, simple and very human about gathering around a fire and sharing stories with other people.
The stories that we are telling in this project are about this place that we call home, the Canadian Prairies. These are the stories of some of the people who have walked across this land. Stories of struggle, and stories of bounty and abundance.
Thank you for coming and sharing this space with us. Be safe.
