The Bard Project – Simon Swadling

Social Impact: Refugee and Indigenous story telling and cultural education.

Studio: Object and Environment Design.

This project explores storytelling as a means of communication, therapy, learning and self-expression through the creation of a series of objects: A shadow puppet theatre to tell stories, an amulet to record them, a vessel to store them and a shelter to gather around and be transported.

The Bard Project is a little piece of poetry to gently interrupt our busy lives with.
