Yarn: Stories Spun in Brisbane at Iceworks
Sophie Blackshaw | On 16, May 2014
Storytelling is often recognised as the oldest art form, and from a biased view, it is without doubt the best. Think of your favourite book or film, and know that that is the final product of an idea that came to one person alone. It’s an amazing thing.
That’s part of the reason whyÂ Yarn: Stories Spun in BrisbaneÂ exists, and why you might fancy going to their next session, themedÂ Unplugged, to be held at Paddington’s Iceworks later this month.
The theme questions whether the modern technology in our lives, including smart phones, printer-scanners, iPads, etc., is actually making our lives better. Would we prefer not to have experienced these technological advances? Would living a simpler life affect us positively?
The event will host six speakers, all of whom will tell their story in whichever way relates to theme. Expect anything!
