On Wed 23rd Jan the Narrative Practitioners Forum will hold its first meeting at The London Inter Faith Centre,
125 Salusbury Rd, Queens Park, London, NW6 6RG
The Narrative Practitioners Forum is a strong and creative group of organisations and individuals emerging out of the collaborative conference held last June “Stories that heal, Stories that harm” and currently consists of The Forgiveness Project. The London Inter Faith Centre, The International School of Storytelling, and St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation & Peace.
It will be held between 5.30-8pm and all those who work in narrative, or are simply interested in personal story, are welcome.
Personal story and narrative are powerful tools for humanising the ‘other’, fostering relationships, dissolving tension and building empathy between people of different backgrounds. They have a key role to play in building bridges of understanding within diverse communities, in conflict zones, between faith groups, and between generations. This approach is fundamental at this point in human history because there is an urgent need for us to learn how to work together in new ways.
This event will be an opportunity to hear about our work, and to get involved and help shape the work of the Forum.
