SummaryJoin this online panel discussion with the artists and museums involved in creating the world of Anksi.
What if the secret of our secure future lay in the forgotten past?
A secret that only children knew about. It told the stories of a past world which became a wasteland.
Once upon a time there was a city of dreams. Something happened there a long-time ago. An event that shifted everything. Since that time, a group of children have become Story Rebels. They are time travellers who reimagine histories and create new worlds. Worldbuilders. Can they find out the secrets of the past to save the future? Are they brave enough to face the challenges ahead?
Join this online panel discussion with the artists and museums involved in creating the world of Anksi. Learn more about how this imaginary community has been created online and how you can develop more online participatory work in the arts, education and heritage sector. Discover more about the role of the artist educator and feel inspired to find new ways to develop eco and emotional literacy through story. This event is suitable for anyone working in the arts, education or heritage sectors.
This project brings together museums, libraries, storytellers, drama specialists and theatre companies and provides an intergenerational opportunity to explore. Help save Anksi!
