Presented in partnership with Open Space Contemporary Arts (OSCA), join Diego Bonetto at Carclew on Tuesday 7 November for an intimate masterclass on The art of storytelling: the setting, the challenge and the empowering moment.

Diego Bonetto is an artist, activist, performer and educator, but above all he is a consummate storyteller. He builds confidence and connections while stitching together ancient and universal cultural relationships to land with the everyday that lies under our feet.

By learning about plants, Diego offers to his audience the chance to discover genetic memories, and experience new landscapes of identity and care.

In a three-hour workshop Diego will cover his journey, from farm boy in a little village in Italy, to public speaker, wild food educator and media personality who has worked with some of the best cultural practitioners of Australia.

It is all in the story; how you tell it and how you make people care. Diego will present and workshop aspects of method, context, narrative and structure. 

  • How to read your audience and build up improvisational skills that will enable you to adapt your story to any setting, to any audience.
  • Posture, projection, mannerism and how that helps in capturing your audience’s attention.
  • Setting and subject, how that helps ground people into your narrative, and draw them in.
  • The importance of jokes, to keep your audience present.
  • The start, the suspense and the S.T.A.R moment (Something They’ll Always Remember).

Participants are asked to bring their own one-page story that they wish to present and discuss in the workshop.

Diego believes that artists have the great task now to create and narrate new stories that will enable modern society to adapt to the shifting paradigms of climatic change, food security, the widening economic gap between rich and poor and importantly, the crisis of belonging.
