Hi! This is Ale.
Last Saturday, our artist in residence Bissan Rafe ran a workshop. The main part was painting, but it had a lot of storytelling in it and was very inspiring.
Bissan started by talking about her storybook project, and showing pictures of related past workshops she has done around the world. Then I read my Japanese translation for the beginning of one of the stories Bissan wrote during her stay at Studio Kura, and attendants were left with a task: write down three wishes to make the world better.
At the end of the workshop, Bissan gave some personal words of support to each of the attendants, especially to the kids, and we were all surprised at how well she had got to know every one of them in such a short span of time.
