Sat, 23 Nov: Listening Lives

Updated: Nov 14, 2019

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?

We're very excited to be working again with Queen Mary University as part of the Being Human Festival of the Humanities. Come and join us on Saturday 23rd November to listen and tell stories of migration, home, journeys and more with migrants, refugees and asylum seekers who have been working with Stories & Supper. You'll have the opportunity to sit around cosy tables, eat delicious snacks (prepared with our team of refugees and volunteers) and reflect on what it means to really listen.

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. Being Human is the UK’s only national festival of the humanities. A celebration of humanities research through public engagement, the nationwide festival brings together universities, museums, galleries, libraries, community and commercial partners to stage stimulating and engaging activities that make research accessible and relevant, strengthen community identity, and increase understanding of the relevance of the humanities to everyday life.

Book tickets here. 12-2pm, Gnome House, Walthamstow.
