This Friday 21st March marks World Storytelling Day, a global celebration of oral storytelling on the Spring Equinox. This is the one day in the year where people are encouraged to tell and listen to as many stories in as many languages at as many places as possible. It is significant for its ability to forge links between creative communities and draw public attention to the role of storytelling as an art form.
The Word Factory event is a chance to explore how the way we use words impacts the way our view of the world. It will include a stellar line-up of female guest speakers:
– Lauren Williams, Birmingham’s Young Poet Laureate, who at 15, is already making big waves on the local arts and culture scene
The evening is run by Little Miss Creative, a network of creatives uniting and empowering women in the West Midlands. Unfortunately for the lads, this is a ladies-only event – but for anyone keen on media, illustrating, photography, poetry, storytelling and events – this is one to follow for a taste of how Brum’s arts and culture scene will develop this year.
