The Stories of Childhood project is part of the World and Eye outreach program, Telling Tales,in which senior adults collaborate with artists of all ages to create story-based art exhibits.
In this project, the storytellers recorded true, personal stories about their own childhoods. Some of the recordings were played to a group of children (aged 7-12) who made shadow puppets to accompany the stories, and to a group of local artists who translated the stories into artwork.
Twelve storytellers, eleven artists, one exhibit: The Stories of Home exhibit is an intergenerational collaboration between a group of storytellers from the Lifelong Learning Institute at Nova Southeastern University, and a group of South Florida artists connected to the World and Eye Arts Center.
