Join us on Saturday Sept. 17!
Department of Play has made an alien vessel and we want to show it to our friends! On Saturday, September 17th from 6:00pm to 8:30pm Story Ship will land on DRC Carson Beach.
Over the summer, Story Ship, a storytelling vessel-turned-recording studio, travelled to different locations in Andrew Square collecting residents’ cherished memories. Initial fuel for the ship came from Portal of Tomorrow, a collaboration with youth in Fields Corner that led to a one-day transformation of a parking lot into Fields Corner from a parallel universe.
Now filled with inspiration, Story Ship is bursting at the seams and ready to share its tales. On Saturday, Story Ship will transform into a gigantic inflatable cubic screen to showcase together on film the stories from Andrew Square and the visions from Fields Corner.
The film tells the story of city planning in an alternate reality where personal memories and wild imaginations are the points of departure for collective decision-making.
Come see Story Ship, and join us and our partners Andrew Square Civic Association and Viet Aid in an evening of food, music and good vibes by the ocean!
Carson Beach is easily accessible from the JFK/UMass and Andrew Square red line stops.
