Our Stories: The River - Film Fest
Bringing professional artists and community members together to discover our stories
Actor/Creator, Dylan Roberts along with Musician, Madison Galloway, and Choreographer, Kween Kay curate a community engagement project involving personal storytelling and self-expression.
Our team will engage with the local community to curate personal stories that evoke “The River” as a central image or theme. Specifically, the Grand River, the piece of water with which we share a connection.
The goal is to engage non-professional, community creators to produce content in their chosen discipline, (storytelling, music, dance/movement, poetry/spoken word) around this central image/theme. Our mandate is to amplify voices that historically have been left out of opportunities to create.
The community members will engage directly with our team of professional artists to receive guidance and support as they explore and create. Our three artists will create their own compositions to act as examples and inspiration to our community members.
All of the final elements, from our team and community participants, will be curated into a final video composition. The event will comprise of a screening of this final composition as well as a live discussion panel.
