Story-spaces and transformation: The Caravan Project

Maria Daskalaki

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this chapter, we discuss untold stories in relation to space and transformative
creativity. We present the Caravan Project, a visual ethnographic project that gives voice to marginalized stories through film documentaries. These documentaries, when reterritorialized in diverse social contexts, produce story-spaces within which untold stories can emerge. We discuss two specific story-spaces and explain how transformative creativity transcends fixed subject positions towards polyvocal modes of becoming. In this context, we propose three properties, mobility, multiplicity and permeability that render creative story-spaces rhizomatic. Consequently, story-spaces encourage fluid, heterogeneous and volatile interactions and through that, maintain their potential to elicit untold stories
