RESTORE: Meet the storytellers
Thu 9 March 2017, 11:00 – 14:00 GMT
RESTORE is an intensive group programme that supports offenders in their desistance journey. Facilitated by both victims and perpetrators of crime, it works to motivate and engage offenders using the transformative power of storytelling.
We are offering the chance to engage in conversations with our storytellers who work in prison - why they tell their story, how it impacts those who hear it, and how telling their story has changed them.
The conversations will be run using the principles of the Human Library which provide a positive framework for dialogue that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices. This supports a space where difficult questions are expected, appreciated and answered. These conversations would be suitable for anyone working in prisons, storytelling and education as well as people with a general interest.
Running alongside the conversations with the storytellers there will be a drop-in group conversation led by Sandra Barefoot, RESTORE Programme Manager, and Ruth Chitty, Lead Facilitator – to further explore the work and the impact it has on the prisoners and the prison staff.
Slots for conversations with storytellers run from:
- 11 - 11.30am

- Midday – 12.30pm
- 12.30pm – 1pm
