Narrative and distress: practice and potential
This talk will explore journeys between theoretical understandings of power and distress, and project work in which individuals reframe experience through the co-production of narratives. Describing learning drawn from the arts and from the stories of people whose knowledge is rarely valued, the talk will utilise examples from Brendan Stone’s project work such as Storying Sheffield, and also refer to his own extensive experience of living with severe and enduring ‘mental illness’.
