Event description
Come and join us for an evening of experimental oral storytelling and home cooked food!

About this Event

This event is organised by the artist Phillip Speakman and F.A.T. Studio.

Below is Phillip's description of Tell:

Tell is an event in which people are invited to come and share food, and tell and be told stories by an invited group of story tellers, and add their own as well. It is an event interested in the transient communal identity created through the ritual act of story telling, in which stories might tell stories, which tell stories, which tell stories.

Tell derives not (I hope) out of a nostalgia for the warmth of premodern traditions, but as an exploration of oral storytelling as a specific mode of communication, one capable of scrambling different timelines and realisms in order to suggest new relations and escape routes, within a sight of comfort and common. Tell is interested in narratives as active cultural objects and pushing towards a machinic understanding of oral story telling, where within the live testing sight created by the collection of listeners, narratives might link histories, theories, fictions and the personal into viscous assemblages with undetermined trajectories, infecting and informing reality if we let them.

Access Notes

1. Under 18's are welcome but will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.

2. Although AMP Gallery is on the ground floor and has a 810mm entrance, it unfortunately does not have a fully accessible bathroom. There is a disabled bathroom at Queen's Road Peckham station (7 minutes walk away from AMP Gallery) which we have an extra key for. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss other accessibility details.

3. If tickets are sold out online but you would still like to attend this event, get in touch at fat.studio.cic@gmail.com or 07896749760 and we'll add you to the wait list. We will also hold a few tickets for each event at AMP Gallery from when we open on the 7th November, so come in and pick one up if you're in the area.
