B A B E L is the search for unfamiliar stories of familiar crafts, figures who held themselves to (super)human standards in growing their craft, and a way out of our world of alienated labour. Believing that discomfort is the start to new beginnings, and that disruptions sow seeds of growth, it is a traveling troupe, a band of storytellers who weave their tales through their chosen mediums. Their craft is one thing; their stories and motivations are another - they help us grow. Through their stories, they remind us of the histories of renegade music, the traditional methods of wheel-throwing clay, the deep roots of our farming histories, emerging narratives of ’taking back our native ecologies', and the imaginary worlds of cli-fi, future worlds, alternate realms and possibilities—because our human selves exist on larger planes, unknown merely to language, but partly accessible through sight, sound, taste, touch, and what we choose to hear.
