Date: 2 July 2020
Time: 6 – 6:45 pm
We know how important story telling is in creating empathy and understanding and as Adam Switala said in our first podcast, quoting a Polish novelist ‘we need stories because facts are not enough, facts do not create understanding’ We are therefore delighted to invite you to a free story telling workshop. Martin Plaut, an expert on the Horn of Africa and a former BBC journalist currently Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies, himself a migrant, will be presenting an online workshop on July 2nd from 6-6.45 pm on ‘How to tell a story that finds an audience’.
