Stories at the Park, is a series presented by Seanchai Library, which coincides with each of our Art at the Park exhibitions at Holly Kai Park. At each event, members of Seanchai Library will read stories or poems inspired by selected works of our Invited Artists. Each story must be precisely 100 words in length, no more, no less (known as a “drabble”), while poems can be of any form, so long as they do no exceed 100 words.
The May / June Stories at the Park event took place on Sunday, June 5th, and featured Caledonia Skytower, Trolley Trollop and Kayden Oconnell reading stories and poems they and Rosedrop Rust (who was unable to attend the reading due to work commitments) had written to the works of our Invited Artists for this period, Ceakay Ballyhoo, Eleseren Brianna, JudiLynn India, Lantana Silverweb, Slatan Dryke and SisterButta.
The authors have graciously given us permission to reprint their works in this blog for those unable to attend the event.
To make things easier, the stories and poems have been split by artist, and each piece is presented with an image of the painting or work which inspired it. In addition, some of the works include an audio recording of the reading for your additional enjoyment:
The art which has inspired these stories and poems will remain on display at Holly Kai Park through until Sunday June 19th – so please do visit and see all of the works displayed by our visiting artists.
