Women & Power
In partnership with the pathbreaking Berkeley-based StoryCenter and the California State Library, the Center for Engaged Storycraft faculty are organizing a a series of gatherings at which stories relevant to women and power will be generated and shared as short video narratives. Exploring the dynamics of spaces, spatial-relations, power, listening, and sharing stories, CES will co-organize gatherings at multiple locations with select groups of storytellers to share stories from a range of scholars, activists, artists, scientists, students, and community partners. Participants will receive their video narrative and these will also be shared and archived as part of the larger California Listens project on Women & Power. The larger, multi-institutional video archive will be available to RIT faculty and students and CES collaborators for research projects and for developing narrative analytics able to trace the complexities of gender, power, spatial relations, language, and narrative today.
