Sunday, June 5th will see the second of our Stories at the Park series, featuring the voice talents of the staff and friends of Seanchai Library.
Each month, members of Seanchai Library and their guests select pieces of art by the artists participating in the current Art in the Park exhibition, and write either a 100-word work of fiction (referred to as a “drabble”) or a 100-word poem about each piece. These stories and poems are then read live at Stories at the Park, either by the author or by a member of Seanchai Library.
For June, Trolly Trollop, Kayden Oconnell, and Caledonia Skytower will be reading pieces inspired by the art of Ceakay Ballyhoo, Eleseren Brianna, JudiLynn India, Lantana Silverweb, Slatan Dryke and SisterButta.
The event starts at 15:00 SLT, and we extend a warm invitation for you to join us for tales and poems at the Holly Kai Park storytelling gazebo, hosted by Caledonia Skytower and Inara Pey.
And if you would like to try your hand at writing a story or two or some poetry for a future Stories at the Park event, please contact either Caledonia or Inara in-world. You don’t necessarily have to read your story yourself at the event if you don’t want to – the folks at Seanchai would be only too happy to read it on your behalf if you’re a little shy about reading your own work.
We look forward to seeing you at Holly Kai Park on Sunday, June 5th at 15:00 SLT – or if you’d like to see the art that has inspired the stories and poems on offer, please feel free to visit the park earlier, or take a tour of the art displays afterwards!
