Event description

Description

In November 2018, 15 teenagers from Birmingham and 15 teenagers from Limerick were brought together to forge connections by telling each other’s stories. Amidst the endless talk of borders and backstops, of divisions and difficult futures, the timing felt particularly apt.

The project was hosted by the global charity Narrative 4, which uses storytelling to break down barriers and foster ‘radical empathy’ around the world. The results were profoundly moving, and both the British and Irish students came away feeling profoundly changed.

Now, one year on, some of those students will be reunited for the screening of the documentary Some Stories, which captures the magic of that weekend. Made by filmmakers from B-Film: The Birmingham Centre for Film Studies, this inspirational documentary will be followed by a talk and Q&A, allowing the participants to reflect on the lasting impact the project had on their lives, as well as the importance of stories in this world, now more than ever.

This event is part of the Being Human festival, led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the British Academy. For further information, please see www.beinghumanfestival.org
