Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Do you want to increase connections, fresh thinking, build culture, communicate power, confidence and hope, increase skills and dialogue? And, through this, to create a new, more inclusive, cultural narrative across London’s NHS?

If you do, then join us on the 25th of July where you will have the opportunity to discover the power of stories and their impact on staff, the organisation, and culture. We will then explore a variety of stories (both traditional and digital), and begin to move into a space where you will begin to dream up some of your own...

There will be 4 sessions in total, and throughout the sessions, we will provide you with time, space and support to help you shape your stories about inclusion and exclusion at work into publishable pieces (whether that be on a website, in a newspaper article, a journal etc). Remember, there is no pressure or rush to publish!

What do we require from you?

There are only three things we require from you…

1) To go away and write to your heart’s content!

2) To attend at least 3 of the 4 sessions

3) To co-operate with us by doing a follow up phone call/survey to help us understand the impact (or lack of impact) of this itnervention

When are the 4 sessions?

1) 25th of July at 4:00pm to 6:30pm (Room 22 – Stewart House | 32 Russell Square | London | WC1B 5DN)

2) 14th of September at 4:00pm to 6:30pm (The Grange White Hall; 2-5 Montague Street, WC1B 5BU)

3) 17th of October at 4:00pm to 6:30pm (Venue TBC)

4) 14th of November at 4:00pm to 6:30pm (Venue TBC)

“…stories matter because humans are narrative creatures. It’s not simply that we like to tell stories, and to listen to them. It’s that narrative is hard-wired into us…We make sense of the world and fashion our identities through the sharing and passing on of stories. And so the stories that we tell ourselves about the world and our place in it, and the stories that are told to us by others about the world and our place in it shape not just our own lives, but the world around us. The cultural narrative is the culture.” p. 13
