“We need stories (and theories) that are just big enough to gather up the complexities and keep the edges open and greedy for surprising new and old connections.”
“Only through stories can invisible or inarticulate or silent beings speak to us; it is they who allow the past to reach out to us.”
Garland offers a platform for a diversity of inspiring stories that reflect the skills and creativity of those who keep their culture alive with their own hands. We need to maintain this diversity if we are to keep our eyes and hearts open. So it is critical that good stories can reach us from the wider world.
Story Keepers will play a leading role in promoting an active maker culture in their communities. Further details to come.
