Exploring the Importance of the Human Voice in Life Stories, Oral Social Histories, Tales of Resistance, Survival and Reconciliation
This online course explores the unique and powerful affect, the inspiration and immediacy our human voice creates when we tell our stories, especially our family or life stories, but also oral histories, national historic narratives and the narration of counter narratives that create the full spectrum of voices, inclusivity, respect, truth-telling and possibilities of reconciliation; the silences of the unrepresentable (violence, abuse, genocide, etc.) held within survivor, witness and bystander stories, and even the telling of traditional folktales or myths that speak softly where the personal becomes ‘lost for words’. Voice is here exclusively used in the sense of voice as oral human utterance and oral expression.
Gently explore your life through metaphors and images.
Recognise yourself in the framework of a story.
Appreciate your life as a work of art.
