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

Black Storytellers

LGBTQIA Storytellers

Disabled Storytellers

Young Storytellers

Elder Storytellers

Emerging 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)
