John Danalis: Workshop 3: Wrapping Ourselves in Story

Session Info:

Story is not limited to the page and screen; for tens of thousands of years story has been retold through dance, puppetry, song, and even clothing.

Half a century ago, John Danalis’s family committed a grave injustice against an Aboriginal clan in Australia. In this workshop, John shares his true story of reconciliation with that Aboriginal clan, which culminated with his family being presented with a rare Aboriginal Possum Skin Story Cloak.

Children will have the opportunity to try on this magnificent garment, and to design a story cloak that tells their own unique story.

This workshop best suited for seven to ten year olds. Limit of one class per workshop.
