Participants will discuss why we tell stories and how to use them to study and conceptualize the experience of the signed story in the culture of deaf society.
They will analyze stories about the private and public life of deaf people collected by the historian Viktor Palenny and then create a project based on them.
The course explores the experience of cinematography, dance, exhibition projects, and street art as means of understanding general principles of project thinking that can be uses in various situations. Moving from the general to the personal, participants will acquire tools for creating an artistic project. Each participant can choose their own way of embodying their idea, and together with the course leaders they will develop a project and present it at the end of the course. Participants can invite friends to the presentation.
