SummaryJoin the launch of an immersive online story experience about building a hopeful future.
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 the launch of an immersive online story experience about building a hopeful future. ‘Saving Anksi!’ encourages families and artist educators to create together as they explore the narrative. You will become a Story Rebel and follow our story guides across three different lands making stories and fictional histories together along the way using music, words, images, objects and materials.
This project brings together museums, libraries, storytellers, drama specialists and theatre companies and provides an intergenerational opportunity to explore. Help save Anksi!
This event is suitable for families and children aged 8+.
