Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan's Project Summary:
City Stories with the Winnipeg Tarot Company
City Stories is an interactive performance art piece, designed to elicit conversation between artists and citizens regarding "place", and to solicit stories from the general public regarding their home city, Winnipeg.
Using an original deck of tarot cards, conceived and produced by Winnipeg artists Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan, a cross-disciplinary team of artists will provided free card readings in various public locations throughout the city for 5 weeks. Participant audience members paid for their readings with a stories that were audio recorded. These stories were archived on an interactive website.
The results of this project were a live experience shared between the artist-animators and citizens, and a cumulative audio, narrative portrait of the city.
