Narrative and Food
This event is part of a series organised by York Theatre
Royal and York St John University on the arts and narrative.
The making, eating, sharing, obsessing about and enjoying of food
are essential to not just our culture but to all cultures. Not many
things are truly universal but food is surely one of them.
Drawing from a range of contributors - including academics,
foragers, artists and storytellers, this event will explore the
role of food in the stories we tell ourselves about who we are,
what we believe in and where we come from.
The speakers for this event:
Sarah Lawson Welsh, Reader in English and Postcolonial
Literatures at YSJU
Fiona Martynoga, Writer and wild food forager
Natalie Quatermass, Theatre practitioner
Guy Hutchins, Storyteller
The event is free.

Narrative and Adolescence
Adolescence is a period when we become
increasing aware of ourselves and our identities in relation to the
world around us. When we start to both discover and attempt to
shape the narrative of our life. This discussion will focus on a
range of concerns relating to young people and narrative.
Speakers: Nathalie Noret (Senior Lecturer in Psychology), Cath
Heinemeyer (Storyteller), Hannah Davies (Playwright), Ella

Narrative and Alternative
Through narrative we can imagine how the
future might be, we can dream of shiny bright possibilities or
project into dark dystopian horrors. This event will bring together
voices from the arts, literature and social sciences to consider
the role of narrative in thinking, imagining and potentially
bringing into being a range of alternative futures.
Speakers: Abi Curtis (Poet and Creative Writer), Andy Miah
(Director, Creative Futures Institute), Liesl King (Senior Lecturer
in English Literature), Mike Stubbs (Director and CEO of FACT -
Foundation for Art and Creative Technology).
This event is free, but ticketed. You can book in advance (01904
