The Fringe – 1pm – Saturday
Kari Herbert’s latest book, We Are Artists celebrates the life and work of 15 female artists from around the globe and the distinctive mark they made on the art world and beyond. Through their personal stories, readers will come to know the circles and art movements each artist worked in, and the influence they exerted on both the art world and society as a whole.
Following in the wake of the Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls phenomenon, We Are Artists is aimed at inspiring young readers and aspiring artists, no matter what their gender, to find their own unique way of making a contribution to the world.
Kari Herbert is an author, storyteller, publisher and presenter. She first started travelling at the age of ten months when her Arctic explorer father and author mother took her to live with the Polar Inuit for over two years, on a remote island off the coast of Greenland. Exploration and shaping stories have been her passions ever since.
