Event description
The Me and Your Stories (MYS) project is hosting an international and interactive conference on Thursday 17 March 2022.

About this event

The Me and Your Stories (MYS) conference will bring together European leaders with practitioners and developers to share and explore the ways new digital tools can make inclusion exciting.

About the project

MYS – Me and Your Stories is a pan-European project that puts the learner at the heart of the community and the classroom by providing powerful storytelling tools on a digital platform.

Sharing stories helps people understand and celebrate difference. The MYS toolbox enables young people to share their own stories, as well as reflect on each other’s, by capturing their voices, thoughts and experiences using photos and videos.

This project supports inclusion by making it easier for everyone to have a voice and for all those voices to be heard as part of a bigger conversation about diversity and difference.

About this event

This conference is aimed at practitioners such as those working in schools, colleges, community centres and museums.

The day will be packed with presentations, interactive workshops and discussions, all of which will provide you with creative ideas on how to use innovative digital tools to promote inclusion within your organisations and communities.

The event can be attended in person at the University of East London and online.

We encourage early bookings; there are still places available but experience shows that these go quickly.
