In your hands: 10 years of Fruit Routes

Storying/Walking, Parts I and II 

14.00 Part I: Branching Out Storywalk: Traditional Stories of Our Treescapes

Guided Storywalk, led by Mike Wilson (LU) and Patrick Ryan

Branching Out, part of the NERC-funded UK Future Treescapes Programme, aims to capture the social and cultural values attached to our urban treescapes, by mapping the biophysical data of trees alongside the stories that we tell about them. Join professional storyteller Patrick Ryan as he brings the Fruit Routes collection to life.

15.30 – 17.00 Part II:  Stories of the Heart Wood 

Led by Fred Dalmasso and Liz Lovely from the Storytelling Academy, Loughborough University

Join us as we gather and share stories of the trees, both personal and universal while listening to the wisdom of the orchards. Bring your good cheer and the tales that live about you.  

All are welcome. Refreshments available at the Barefoot Orchard from 15.30.

Elizabeth Jane Lovely began her PhD at Loughborough University in October 2021, affiliated with the Storytelling Academy. Elizabeth’s research is focused on the felt sense invoked by the in-person listening to of fairy tales, and how this impacts upon healing of the whole being.

Fred Dalmasso is a Lecturer in Drama at Loughborough University. As a theatre practitioner, he writes and directs plays that merge stories from the public with philosophers’ lives and thoughts in order to render philosophy accessible through the arts.
