The Stories of Childhood project is part of the World and Eye outreach program, Telling Tales, in which older adults collaborate with artists of all ages to create story-based art exhibits.
Stories of Childhood is an intergenerational collaboration between:
In this project, the storytellers recorded true, personal stories about their own childhoods. The recordings were then played to a group of local artists who translated the stories into artwork. Some of the stories were also played to a group of children (aged 7-12) who made shadow puppets to accompany the stories.
The art, puppets, and stories were exhibited at the World & Eye Arts Center during the FAT Village Art Walks.
Featuring work by:
