The central focus of the PARN project is on creating, presenting and representing narratives in physical space. Storytelling is a fundamental human capacity and is widespread in a variety of cultural forms as well as being one of the ways in which, according to many researchers of learning and awareness, we make sense of the world as we experience and reflect it. As the acclaimed poet Simon Ortiz puts it: “there are no truths, only stories.”

FoAM’s role in PARN is to research and design an alternate reality narrative, an emerging story-scape inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka’s creed “the ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.” PARN is coordinated by Time’s Up (AT), in collaboration with FoAM (BE), Lighthouse (UK) and Blast Theory (UK). FoAM’s additional allies and advisers in PARN are Six to Start (UK), Foamlab (NL), Sinfonye (UK) and Tale of Tales (BE).
