We've taken 'What's the Story?' online this year but our goal is the same: to offer a space for the sharing of stories, making space for connection across our community, by listening to the lived experiences of those who have been through the direct provision system. Join this event to hear poetry and reflections around the themes of family, home and time.
Launched in 2017, 'What's the Story?' has offered the opportunity for more than 20 current or former residents within the direct provision to share their stories in their own words, and had made space for those receiving these stories to learn and to connect, person to person.
