CALLOUT FOR STORYTELLERS!
SOUNDMAPPING OUR 5 SQUARE MILES
As part of her project ‘Soundmapping Our 5 Square Miles’, musician & emerging storyteller Ailsa Mair Hughes is inviting two additional storytellers living in Wales to participate in the process of ‘soundmapping’ their local surroundings, and to create a short (20-30 minute) performance piece in response to this. The piece can involve soundscape recording, music and is very much open to individual storytelling style!
Ailsa is particularly interested to hear from:
Bilingual (Welsh-English) Storytellers
Minority ethnic Storytellers
Storytellers adversely affected by the Covid pandemic
Storytellers who have a particular affinity with their local landscape or who would like the opportunity to cultivate this.
The resulting performance will be shared online in Ailsa’s monthly storytelling circle ‘STONE SOUP’ - offered through the Zoom platform - on Saturday November 14th 2020 6-8pm, which will be recorded and made available for others to enjoy online afterwards.
FEE: £250 / storyteller
Please apply to Ailsa by September 30th 2020, providing these details:
A short biography
Why you would like to be part of the project
What special qualities you could bring
Your relationship to your local surroundings
Any links to examples of your work online (if you have them)
