The Art of Storytelling part of the Sunshine Coast Horizon Festival: The Art of Storytelling, will deliver a range of storytelling events throughout the Sunshine Coast Council's Horizon Festival that will capture local stories of place that engage with a diverse array of artistic mediums that include film, music, dance, performance and photography.

The project assimilates precisely with the objective of the festival – 'to create a platform for the creative voice of the region'. This will be achieved by engaging at a grass roots level with diverse community groups and individuals in the months leading up to the Horizon Festival. Interested locals will have the opportunity to share their stories through events such as Story Slams as well as via community group based presentations. Individual and group-led storytellers will work with Peripheral Arts and its affiliated local creative networks and artists to reimagine and recreate their story via other artistic mediums.

The Art of Storytelling event will be a refined and professionally captured performance of 'stories and art' presented throughout the festival as part of the Sunshine Coast Council's travelling Arts Pod Caravan. A number of cinematically-captured displays of local stories will also be presented via the Pod in key festival sites across the Sunshine Coast throughout the festival week 2nd September – 11th September 2016.
