The Zebra in the Museum: How to Write a Story
14. Juli 2021, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
What is “normal,” and how do we react when something seems “different” or new to us? For example, what if a speaking zebra suddenly appears or someone has two dads, as in Markus Orths’s children’s book Das Zebra unterm Bett (The Zebra under the Bed). Calmly and with an open mind! This is how the story goes, and it’s also what the artists in the exhibition Journey Through A Body hope for.
In the workshop, the participants will embark on a journey of discovery through the exhibition with the author. They will collect ideas for their own stories and write them down—with tips from a professional writer. Markus Orths’s latest book Ein Elefant macht Handstand (An Elephant Does a Handstand) was created in collaboration with his daughter Lola. The two tell a story and at the same time teach us how to write exciting stories ourselves. In the workshop there will also be many other books to discover on topics such as the body, family, and sexuality.
For Children aged 8 to 11.
In cooperation with Literaturbüro NRW e.V. and the Stadtbücherei Düsseldorf.
