Time to tell road tales

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Stage -

WA artist James Ber­lyn is seek­ing sto­ries of road trauma from young peo­ple aged 15 to 20 for the arts-based pro­ject Split Sec­ond.

He will then cre­ate a new work­shop se­ries for young adults from these real-life sto­ries with stu­dents from Mt Law­ley SHS.

“The lives of young peo­ple can be pro­foundly af­fected by road trauma through phys­i­cal in­juries or psy­cho­log­i­cal strain; even just know­ing some­one who has been in­volved in an ac­ci­dent can be trau­matic,” Ber­lyn said.

“We want to shine a light on those sto­ries, those mo­ments where a de­ci­sion is made that has a life-long im­pact.”

If you or some­one you know would like to sub­mit a story, con­tact Ber­lyn on 0410 033 199 or at hel­lojb@james­ber­lyn.com by Mon­day, Au­gust 17.
