Erin Meyer Charneux

Workshop: Visual Storytelling

By Erin Meyer Charneux

Brussels: 24 October 2018

Ever wanted to do something that seemed “impossible”?
Ever been afraid to try something new because it might not work?
Ever have a burning desire to do something but not sure where to start?

Erin has felt this way too.

She's been dreaming up a ‘crazy idea’ for something she calls Visual Storytelling. It involves her making a painting while telling a story - LIVE. It’s not just her story though, it’s your story too. You, the participants, get to help her create this painting by sharing your stories, your “impossible” dreams, your missteps, and your experiences.

Why?

Because through sharing we learn from one another. Because when we can see words represented on canvas, our stories are made tangible through paint and movement, we gain a perspective unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. At least, that’s what Erin is hoping for.

Although all Imagination Club workshops are experimental, Erin's will be more experimental than most. This is what she has to say about it:

"Maybe it won’t work at all…. Honestly, I’m a bit terrified of the whole thing. But this crazy idea has been pestering me for almost a year now, waking me up at night, sweeping me off my feet at the most unexpected moments. I need to try this out. I can’t think of a better place to start, than with Jeffrey, Andy, you and others at the Imagination Club.

To let you in on a little secret, two weeks ago Jeffrey emailed me asking if I still wanted to do this workshop. I was tempted to back out. I’m nervous. But I really want to try. I called Jeffrey. We talked. I started to breath again. And so here I am, writing this description. I knew if I just called Jeffrey, everything would be alright. So please come try this out with me…or not. There’s a part of me that hopes no one will come. Not really…but still…"
