Salon Series-David Gonzalez- storyteller
Please Join Us...
Welcome to The Maxine Greene Salon Series, a series of conversations with artists, scholars, educators and others interested in the work of Maxine Greene. We hope these Salons will provide a place for an exchange of ideas and a sharing of artworks, teaching practices related to aesthetic education, and examples of social imagination. After each installment online throught the coming months we aim to continue the conversation on our website via the Conversations feature. This Series will be launched on July 10th and will be available for viewing thereafter on our website.
David Gonzalez- Storyteller
Our first salon in this series will be a three-part conversation with storyteller, musician and poet David Gonzalez. David will perform a few short stories from around the world and walk us through some aspects of the craft of storytelling including Words, Voice, Movement and Imagination and, what he calls, “Technologies of Enchantment”.
Joining us to help facilitate the conversation will be education students from various CUNY campuses who have studied aesthetic education.
Maxine was a big fan of David’s and described his performance in her book Variations on a Blue Guitar
“What we shared with David was an enactment of art-making - - someone raising up a world before our eyes through movement and the sound of his voice and the expressions of his face…and by means of my imagination I can make it my own.”
