Listening Lives

23 November, 2019, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

We often hear stories about refugees, but it is not often that we get to listen to stories told by refugees in their own words. And it is not often that we shift the focus from the stories themselves to the process of listening. What does it mean to really listen?

Join an afternoon storytelling event in Waltham Forest, and listen to migrants, refugees and asylum seekers sharing their stories and inviting you to share yours. The room will be set out like a café, and people will be invited to sit around small tables with refugee storytellers, eat delicious snacks (prepared with our team of refugees and volunteers) and to listen. At the end of the session, you will be invited to enter our ‘listening booth’ and share your thoughts and experiences of careful listening.

The workshop is hosted in partnership with Stories & Supper who share stories behind the migration headlines through street food, suppers and social events.

This event is part of the ‘This Time It’s Personal’ Being Human hub series by Queen Mary University of London and King’s College London.
