Exhibition and Collections

Collections

Details of upcoming exhibitions and venues will be posted here and on the Facebook page as they become available.

As stories are received, they are streamed into one of 5 main collections.

  1. Autobiographical - a story about your direct life experiences. 

    • The story can be anonymous and still qualify under this collection.

  2. Conceptual (creative and thematic) - a story that expresses an idea, concept, emotion, or experience within a more metaphorical presentation.

  3. Generational - stories that speak to specific moments in time.

  4. Cultural - stories that speak to a person's culture, family, or traditions.

The Vomit Collection (Collection 5)

Storytelling is cathartic as you externalise what may be a painful memory, experience or burden. The Vomit Collection focuses on the process of externalisation, getting the story out and on paper.

The Collection is a sealed body of work that is not exhibited and the submission process is slightly different for this collection.

As with any submission, you still need to abide by the Storytellers charter and include your contact details at the point of submission. However, the work itself remains sealed and is destroyed at the end of the Project. 

The work is then acknowledged in the online catalogue in the following format:

  • Your first initial and a single-word summary, for example W-Regret.

  • To make a submission to the Vomit Collection, send us an email.

Exhibitions

Exhibitions will occur at different points throughout the Project, as work is reived within the various collections.
