FEST Online Forum #8 Storytelling, Sexuality and Gender Identity: a Journey for RepresentationOctober 15, 2020 Thursday,20:00 - 21:30
In the last few decades the world has been changing:
the once static concepts of Gender and Sexuality has been growing and evolving turning into a multicoloured spectrum of endless identities; And as our perception of the world changes so does the way we look at Stories.
Looking at them through this new perspective could actually surprise us: maybe some of those characters we always thought we knew, can show us a different overlooked side; maybe under this new light those stories can show us different themes, new possibilities; and if we bring this light to the audience when we tell the story, maybe someone among them will see it and recognise it as its own.
“But why should I do that?”
-may someone ask-
“Why is this so important?” and “If I wanted to do it, how can I find that perspective?
Let's Talk about this
let's all join in a Journey of self-awareness and understanding that will put us on the path of representation of minorities, and maybe... will give us some new perspectives.
