W3 | The Storyteller and the Relationship to Oral Heritage and Education

Inês Francisca Oliveira (Portugal) and Kassem Istanboul (Tiro Association for Arts, Lebanon)


"This workshop offers a unique journey to explore the powerful intersection of female memory, cultural heritage, and ducofiction. It seeks to investigate the fundamental role of women in shaping cultural landscapes and how their identities have intertwined and influenced the environment around them since ancient times.
Inspired by the research project “Percursos de Inês de Jesus: lugares-do-saber na paisagem” (2022) which analyzed the role of rural women in the early 20th century in shaping the northern portuguese landscape. This investigation got inspiration from aboriginal songlines to map the memory and cultural heritage of a lesser-known family figure: great-grandmother Inês. In “Cultural landscapes and female identity: docufiction in memory mapping”, participants are invited to embark on a journey of self-discovery and creative collaboration. The ultimate goal is to collectively construct a representation of the cultural heritage of the territory from a female perspective, mapping memories of our ancestors and their stories through internal dialogue and docufiction. This workshop is an interactive and immersive experience designed to engage participants in a creative exploration of cultural heritage, personal and collective identity. The workshop will require a comfortable meeting room equipped with tables, chairs, and a multimedia setup for presentations. Additionally, access to an outdoor area, such as a garden or courtyard, would be ideal for certain activities. About the materials, we will need big drawing paper pens, markers and pencils for participants to jot down their thoughts, ideas and memory sketches. A projector and screen for presentations, as well as audio playback capabilities will be needed and also an audio recording devices and/or camera to document the experience. To ensure an intimate and collaborative atmosphere, the workshop is limited to a maximum of 12 participants. This limitation allows for meaningful interactions and the opportunity for everyone to actively contribute to the co-creation process. Overall, this workshop promises a transformative experience where participants can delve into their own identities, explore cultural heritage, and engage in creative storytelling through a blend of personal reflection, mapping, representing using docufiction as a creative tool for co-creating in heritage practices."

Limited to 15 participants.
