Why do stories haunt the liminal spaces that imperceptibly surround us? Our worlds, including the organisations we inhabit, are full of corridors, staircases, ruins, graveyards, alleys, bunkers, beaches and crossroads. And these edgelands are both troubling and seductive. They have the potential to blur identifies, create confusion and sow uncertainty. Yet they simultaneously promise creativity, growth and the lure of transgression.
So, for those drawn to the ‘thin places’ where worlds elide and interlace, step across the threshold into the betwixt and between. And listen to the stories they whisper.
