MYTHS & LEGENDS PROJECT

Co-Curated by Trueson Daugherty & Steve Liggett


A MYTH or LEGEND IS:  a story of historical events that serves to unfold part of the world view of a people or explain a practice, belief, or natural phenomenon.


This project entitled MYTHS & LEGENDS has two parts:

  

  • 1) The first part will be held during June with a series of speakers, readings, exercises and experiences that will encourage each participant to identify the concepts, images, songs, movements that they identify as their own personal mythologies and/or legends that influence their Life in many different ways.

  • 2) The second part will be a curated exhibition and a night of performances in September of all types of forms of expressions that are presented to show these personal mythologies and/or legends. So, if your work deals with Myths or Legends, then enter!  If it doesn’t we have all of these Lectures, Experiences and Workshops to help you discover your  personal mythology and you can have time to make one.  Details below:
