Over the last few months, it is has been my pleasure to re-launch Art at the Park at Holly Kai Park, expanding the programme of art and events there, whilst also gradually redeveloping parts of the park.
One of our other recent introductions at the Park has been Stories at the Park, which is run in partnership with Seanchai Library. Each month, writers and storytellers are invited to visit the park and select pieces of art featured in our current Art at the Park series and write either a 100-word work of fiction (referred to as a “drabble”) or a 100-word poem about each piece, which can then be read live in Voice, either by the author or by a member of the Seanchai team, during Stories at the Park events.
The next Stories at the Park event will take place on Sunday, June 5th. If you fancy you hand at writing a story (or two or three… 🙂 ), or a mix of stories and poems, and would like either to read them yourself at Stories at the Park, or have a member of the Seanchai Library team read them, please contact either myself or Caledonia Skytower in-world as soon as possible.
And of course, if you would like to join us to hear the stories and poems read, you’re more than welcome to do so – we’ll be publishing the times for the event nearer to the date.
To gain a feel for things, why not read the stories and poems featured in the April Stories at the Park event.
