Women's experiences are different, how we see the world, how we are treated in the world, how we make sense of the world are unique and diverse.
Women's stories are not heard as loudly, as often, as seriously or as humourously as they could be.
Women need space and time to tell, to be heard, to listen and connect through sharing our experiences, through our crafted stories. We need to make sense of our lives in a way that brings peace and hope to the events that have shaped us, as we then in turn shape them into a story. We then give this as part gift part message to our audience and know ourselves in a deeper way.
This is an open opportunity eight women to tell a 5 - 8 minute true story - no notes, it happened to you, and for the rest of us to listen. There is no obligation to tell a story, in fact listeners are needed just as much as tellers.
May 2, 2017 Theme: Sickness and Health
Tell us a story of the body, how a crisis of health, your own or someone around you, came to your life. Tell us about the vomit, blood, guts and pain. Tell us about sickness in a relationship, your heart or your mind, tell us about the doctors and nurses, the patients, the tests, the fears and acceptance.
