The Culture of Welcome: Writers Working with Refugees
Sun 13 November 2016, 16:30 – 18:00 GMT
It is difficult to turn on the news without seeing images of desperate people taking desperate measures to reach safe shores. Nottingham has a long history of welcoming newly arrived people, adapting itself to them while changing them to be more like it.
Writing East Midlands’ project Write Here - Sanctuary is an attempt to extend this culture of welcome through literature, listening to people whose voices have been lost somewhere between the immigration debate and Brexit.
Join writers Rich Goodson, Victoria Mponde, Henderson Mullin and others to hear how sharing stories can change minds.
