Welcome to the International Centre for Arts and Narrative

We are back!- and excited about the new term! We have a collaborative project between York Theatre Royal and York St John University exploring the concept of narrative and its influence on our lives. We host a variety of talks, facilitate research and run workshops relating to this topic, committed to a diverse exploration of the concept. We aim to demonstrate the effect that art has on our lives, to show its importance and practical use. As Clifford Greetz states, culture is "the stories we tell about ourselves"; through exploring narrative we can explore the cultures we are part of and our identities within them.
