Who is the Bard for?
Bard is for anyone with an inquisitive mind who loves stories and mythology and just has a sense that there
might be something in this ‘stuff’ of culture, in no small part because it has lasted such a long time and is,
essentially, of the people, the wisdom of the people.
What is the purpose of the Bard?
The primary purpose of the Bard is the re-engagement with a unique traditional heritage in order to help us
reflect on where we are today. To ask whether myths are true is the wrong question, the question to ask is to
do with their utility.
