The (healing) power of stories
In the current era of displacement and digital disruption, we often lack grounding and belonging. We need stories to lead us through, to empower us and often to humanise us. Stories are our intangible wealth. They carry a transformative and potentially healing power. Our own stories form part of our personal and cultural identity, while the stories of others can inspire and guide us.
How do our stories travel through the bodies of others, inspire new creations, or provide the ground for new emotional experiences? Imagine if the waiting room of a hospital or a train station could be filled with stories or if the lonely could hear the voices of others in headphones attached to park benches.
