We Are The Story, We Are The Song – Workshops and Live Performances By The Venus Bushfires At Horniman Museum and Gardens

Date: 06 October 2021

Join Us in Transforming ‘Life In Lockdown’ Stories Into Enchanting Live Musical Performances By The Venus Bushfires. Suitable For The Whole Family

The Venus Bushfires invites you to The ‘We Are The Story, We Are The Song’ storytelling workshops and live musical performances.

Come and join us as we transform ‘life in lockdown’ stories from local communities into songs that will be performed by The Venus Bushfires and friends at the Horniman.

Performances will include the ethereal hang instrument, soothing vocals, traditional African percussion, steel pans, electric guitar, violin and a special surprise.

The workshops aim to explore how we communicate with each other and share our ideas, experiences and cultures through the art of storytelling. With the help of artist Helen Epega, families will collectively create a story inspired by the pandemic and their lockdown experiences. Elements of the story such as words and or feelings will be reflected in the live musical performance by The Venus Bushfires.

The workshops are intended to develop confidence, sense of community, communication skills and inter-family dialogue.

The last 18 months have been tough for us all. Let’s come together, share our stories, inspire one another and celebrate each other.
