At the request of several people who wrote to us, we decided to launch an online version of the workshop Nature Telling Stories!an original proposal by Wimblu focused on creative documentary and spiritual ecology. The objective of the workshop is to provide spaces, exercises and tools to explore the language of non-fiction to tell stories at the intersections of ecology, culture and spirituality.
The workshop will combine theory and practice: each session will include lectures, as well as in-class practices, references reviews and group discussion. Materials (readings, documentaries, etc.) will be assigned and provided between sessions, and additional practices and resources will be suggested for students to explore on their own time. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to initiate a project during the workshop, or use the space to develop an ongoing project, for this we will offer an optional 30-minute individual session (at a time to be agreed with each participant) to give our feedback.
The proposal responds to the purpose of our organization to create and publish stories that restore our sense of connection and belonging to the Earth. In this workshop we seek to tell stories 'with' nature, recognizing ourselves as participants in the trajectories and subjectivities of other beings, exploring through that relationship our own subjective experience of the world.
In Wimblu we have more than 12 years of experience in the field of documentary and research, and we have more than five years of focusing our own practice on topics related to ecology and spirituality. Through our magazine we have had the opportunity to collaborate closely with more than 50 authors around the world whose work also explores these intersections. In this workshop we synthesize what we have learned over the years to explore creative documentary as a process in which our inner and outer landscapes connect.
Spaces are limited so we will carry out a selection process, you can apply by clicking on this link.
