Salon Series-Part two-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. 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.
David Gonzalez- Storyteller
In part two David will explore the use of Words, Voice, Movement and Imagination- what he calls the Confluence Model. He will perform a Persian tale called "Nina Nails It" and have a conversation with some students from Holly Fairbank's aesthetic education class at CUNY's Hunter College and Borough of Manhattan (BMCC).
Part two of this Series will be launched on August 15th and will be available for viewing thereafter on The Maxine Greene Institute You Tube Channel.
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.”
