Faithmarks StoryCraft – Interactive storytelling about your tattoo

Friday, 2:00pm | Studio

Engage with those who have faith or spiritual tattoos in a public and vocal way. Via a quick and super-creative writing workshop, Anna Golladay will walk participants through the art of crafting the story surrounding their tattoo. Using the themes of the festival – Lament, Welcome, Identity, Evolve, Revolution and Love – participants will mold a response related to the art that covers their skin. Be it poetry, spoken word or prose, the stories that evolve are important threads woven through the fabric that is Wild Goose. Some participants will perform or read the results to the group. Once the stories are written, participants are encouraged to share them with Wild Goose TV, on the Wild Goose website and on the Faithmarks website or even, perhaps, on the Wild Goose Main Stage.

Anna Golladay

Anna thrives on curating creative & entrepreneurial possibility via Work of Place and Faithmarks. She is a United Methodist pastor, a creative ninja, entrepreneurial to the core and sarcastic to a fault. Via Work of Place, she helps urban churches understand how their underutilized facilities can work alongside burgeoning entrepreneurs, often lacking in resource and financing, with the intent of sparking both neighborhood revitalization and an increase in ideators who change their communities. She is also the curator and founder of Faithmarks, a photographic art exhibit that showcases the spiritual stories behind tattoos. With storytelling at the heart of this traveling show, Anna invites our stories to provide the creative foundation for the new Kingdom that is needed, not to bind us to the mold of the one that birthed us.
