Fairytale Past, Fairytale Future: Applied Imagination Workshop
Thu 8 December 2016, 16:30 – 17:00 GMT
"Come with me and you'll be in a world of pure imagination."
In the eternal words of Mr Willy Wonka, you are invited to step into the magical world of fairytales as part of inworkshop conducted by Piyumi Wickrama from Sri Lanka in the Applied Imagination Festival 2016.
From curious beginnings lost in the mists of time to their iconic status today, classic fairytales have woven themselves into the very fabric of our lives. As children, we ask, "can I be a mermaid?" and "are unicorns real?" We dream of true love in our teens and devote our lives to the pursuit "happily ever after" (whatever that may be) as adults. This interactive session will explore the past, present and future of fairytales and their role in our world. It will surprise you, challenge your imagination and indulge your inner child, and who knows, perhaps you'll leave thinking, "I do, I do, I do believe in fairies."
