About the presenters
Iris Curteis, PhD, Storyteller and Social Artist
Iris Curteis is a storyteller and social artist who encountered Steiner’s work as an 18-year-old and had the privilege to meet and learn from inspiring, knowledgeable, and creative teachers in Europe. She studied visual arts, dramatic arts [speech formation] in Stuttgart; a BA & BA Hon. in Creative Writing (SCU; UNE), and explored Storytelling and Community Building in her PhD thesis [SCU]. Working as a storyteller for several decades has convinced her that storytelling empowers our imagination and creative thinking and encourages us to appreciate our lives as works of art. As a social artist, she is passionate about using art, threefolding and creativity to examine and change the way we think, build our capacity to shape more humane communities and support transformational change. She has explored the power of the human voice and the possibility to use the creative spoken word, sounds and storytelling to support those who are approaching death; to overcome a sense of overwhelm and loneliness. Storytelling takes us into a liminal space – a crossing of thresholds – that can support us to gently and consciously enter a different state of being.
