In the pilot, we seek to provide the tools for youths to listen actively to one another, and for parents—and other adults who determine the paths of young people—an opportunity to refine their listening and absorb these stories, while venturing new forms of dialogue.
The project ran during the autumn of 2018, kicking off with workshops in mid-September. The results will be presented in Q1, 2019.
Nov 21: The launch at Danderyd High School (with workshops ongoing until January 2019). On five occasions, a group of students labelled, through sound stories, significant emotions, events and places in their daily lives. With everyday sounds as a starting point, the youths identified the themes that form the basis of their sound works. Through exercises in listening, collecting sounds and storytelling, the students have crafted structures for their stories.
Dec 4: The results of workshops at Viktor Rydberg High School were reported. With the aim of anonymizing the stories, the sound works have been staged by students from other schools and actors. The audio stories are easy to identify with—by highlighting the problems surrounding stress, loyalty and achievement—and express a strong desire to feel whole.
