Stories of survival (SoS) is a project that interrogates how we tell stories about our world.
It explores our global environmental crisis by challenging the way we talk about it, write about it, and engage with it.
SOS confronts assumptions about conventions of aesthetic production and reception and invites participants to explore transformative ideas through innovative multimedia storytelling.
SOS is engaging with children, young people and students in Gloucestershire through workshops, multimedia performances, music and storytelling. It is funded by LIFT at University of Gloucestershire.
“SOS opened me up to different ways of approaching a creative practice, for example by looking at how people interpret a story or narrative and showing the different ways words, music and media can affect their experience. Learning to communicate ideas and stories in new ways is vitally important.”
