EVENT: Narrative Practitioners Forum – 24 September 2013


An invitation to those who use personal narrative and story in their work to share best practice and learn from each other.

An alive and spontaneous space that nurtures a growing body of wisdom, and encourages creative cross-disciplinary collaborations.

The Forum meets six times a year.  Meetings include:  mini-workshops, presentations on new areas of work, small group discussions on best practice, networking time, sharing info and resources.

September’s meeting will include:

1. Playback Theatre taster:  Playback Theatre creates an opportunity for real stories to be heard and then reflected back through theatre in a communal context. There is testimony, witness and a potential for transformation through the artistic response.  Stories – lived experiences, memories, thoughts, feelings – will emerge into the public space from you the audience, and we will follow the thread of our collective conversation through the Playback Theatre process.

2. Discussion:  What principles and philosophies inspire or underlie our work in this field?  With Scherto Gill (Guerrard Hermes Foundation for Peace) & Justine Huxley (St Ethelburga’s).

3. Mini Workshop: Entering the Sacred through Story. Rose Rylands is a teacher, songwriter and storyteller. She is passionate about using story as a vehicle to connect children and adults with spirituality and also with nature, at this critical time of transition.

The forum is a collaboration with The Forgiveness Project and the London Inter Faith Centre with input and involvement from the International School of Storytelling and Guerrard Hermes Foundation for Peace

Time: 5:30 PM  to  8:15 PM

Location:  The London Inter Faith Centre, 125 Salusbury Road, Queens Park, NW6 6RG
