Storytelling Circle

 

MycoMythologies: Storytelling Circle is an on/off_line performative workshop that evokes and employs the mycelial mind of the attendants through nodes of knowledge gathering practices and embodied mycology. Participants create their own mycomythological, speculative stories and reflect on some previously generated, while learning about World Networks Entanglement also known as planetary infrastructures with focus on fungal underground networks. Throughout the workshop various modes of learning and storytelling are performed, employed and learned: How to be a Mushroom Hunter soundwalk, Spores and Networks guided meditation, Mycelial Storytelling Objects, Carrier Bag Weaving tutorial, Mycelial Map-Making … Each workshop is a node in the mycelial web: networking, expedition, gathering story spores, making maps, storytelling and spawn.
