Weaving Stories is a storytelling development programme meant to redefine oral tradition through new ways of approaching heritage. Here, under the British Council, we visited two crafts organisation in Mandar and Makassar in Sulawesi, East Indonesia to build a narrative on old tradition.
Through a residency and a storybuilding method the outcome of the project is two separate books highlighting the value of crafts in a fable-like storytelling method supported by illustrations. These books would then be given back to the community of crafters hoping it builds the value of crafts for the next generation.
