Narrative as Resistance

Where: ArtRage, 505 Hawley Avenue, Syracuse, NY 13203

Description:

“What an act of faith and hope!”—Narrative as ResistanceThis 90-minute seminar will use From Gods to Social Justice as a springboard to the question of how narrative art—the art of stories and storytelling—can be used as a mode of resistance. What strength does a story give its teller in the fight for social justice? Is the strength of a story different from the strength of an image? In the fight for human rights, does one win the right to tell a story…or is the story the battleground itself? Featuring short works by Indian authors Arundhati Roy and Amit Chaudhery, this community seminar will explore the use of narrative art in the pursuit of social and environmental justice.The workshop is free and open to the public.
