How do artists reveal their culture's (and their own) hidden or unheard voices? How does an awareness of these voices change our views about ourselves?
Many artists have told stories for others through their art. Some of the stories are ones that had previously gone unnoticed; others had been deliberately silenced for many reasons. This exercise will show how there can be multiple points of view about a single event. You will explore the character and implications of silenced histories by creating a film treatment that describes how you would tell a silenced history.
