Description

Join Ruth Gilligan at the University of Birmingham's Book to the Future Festival, as she disucsses the importance of understanding how cultures differ to our own, and the ways in which we can break down these barriers.

In today’s multicultural world, fostering an understanding of cultures different to our own has become increasingly important. One powerful way to achieve this is by using storytelling to break down barriers and develop ‘radical empathy’. Gilligan is a bestselling author and Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Birmingham. She is also an ambassador for the global not-for-profit Narrative 4.

Location: University of Birmingham, University House, Room G12.

The festival is open to all who are interested in the arts. It welcomes staff and students of the University of Birmingham, but also extends a warm invitation to the general public. We look forward to welcoming you!
