The Storying Chair

Storying Chair with Dan Jones

Artist Dan Jones held 6 sculpture and storytelling sessions in June and July at the
Astrea Academy Dearne. Over the course of these sessions, he worked with the 50
young people who make up the Athena group, creating ‘The Storying Chair’. This
chair became a tool for storytelling, it was used as a device to facilitate the
participants to tell stories which were then spoken and recorded.
