Imagine your hope is a precious object…
Where would you keep it?
What condition is it in?
What does having it allow you to do?
I am developing a new storytelling performance to share stories of hope. The intention is to make a live event that includes story, sculpture and archiving to gather and amplify our hopes for ourselves, our communities and the places we live.
Incubation is a research and development project that will interrogate the role (and needs) of both artist and producer alike. Led by Stephanie Katie Hunter featuring the work of Harry Josephine Giles, Amy Conway, and Nicholas Barton-Wines, Incubation is a direct response to the current times we are living through and our need to be supported to engage and maintain our creative practice(s).
As part of the project, I am asking daily questions throughout November to encourage a moment of reflection on your own hopes which can be shared to help inspire the show. These questions are asked daily on Twitter and Instagram. We welcome responses to these questions on the platform you choose to engage with them.
These questions are also emailed daily and you can sign up to receive them here by noting in the subject and message field the following phrase:
Sign me up for Daily Questions!
Additionally, I am looking to have a creative discussion about hope and your relationship to it with a range of people. These will take place on Zoom for one hour on November 27th 2020. Through reflection, storytelling and sculpting your own hope-object with supplied materials, the conversation will help inspire the project as well as offer a moment to check in with yourself.
Should you wish to take part in one of these facilitated conversations, please contact Stephanie here noting in the subject and message field the following phrase:
I’d like to discuss hope with Nick!
We’d love to hear from you.
