Take a look at the powerpoint slides that accompanied Prof Joe Winston’s keynote at our 2011 symposium on Storytelling and Translation.

The George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling annual symposium on Storytelling and Translation, took place at the Atrium, Cardiff on 6th and 7th May 2011.

Stories give us a space in which to exchange and share, to create empathy and to explore differences. We have chosen Storytelling and Translation as the theme for this year’s symposium and aim to interpret this in the broadest possible sense. We hope this symposium will provide a space to reflect on a broad range of translations, adaptations and transformations and to engage with issues of place, medium, intertextuality, language, and cultural specificity to name just a few. We intend to engage with both academic and practice led debates about how story can engage with these issues. We are delighted to welcome to the centre a diverse range of speakers who we hope will present a fascinating and challenging series of lectures and provocations. 
This is the fifth annual symposium at the George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling. The centre has grown over the last six years and we now have a significant range of activities from small events with community groups through to major international partnerships and research projects. We are dedicated to promoting, developing and researching storytelling in all its forms.

The keynote lecture is free but booking is essential, places at the symposium are priced at £30 (full price) or £20 (unwaged).
