Taking Back Our Narrative
The Taking Back Our Narrative workshop was delivered at Huddersfield University as a creative residential, with a group of young people who are care experienced. It was a powerful and emotive residential where the young people explored many aspects of their own personal journeys. The residential ended on a very powerful high, where young people wrote, developed and delivered to the group their own piece of verse entitled 'I was, I am, I will be.
This workshop takes a creative approach to individuals exploring and reflecting upon their lived experience. The workshop encourages individuals to engage with aspects of their own story through creative mediums, unleashing the power of their truth, taking back their story; having a greater control over what goes into it and who they choose to share with.
