Reclaiming our Narrative
The Reclaiming our Narrative workshop was delivered at Your Life Your Story's 2019 Creative Residential at Cumbria University.
This creative based workshop explores aspects of both our personal journey and the collective care experience through art, poetry & spoken word.
This workshop encourages reflection upon our own personal narratives, discovering & harnessing the power of our stories, our truths, to create a personal piece of verse.
Through verse led discussion we explore the negativity of our past, dispelling the myths, speaking our truth out loud, acknowledging that this does not define who we are today and who we are capable of becoming. This workshop encourages individuals to work collaboratively with care experienced peers, to discover, unlock and explore their creativity and create a powerful expression of our collective journey through the creation of a piece of visual art.
Our stories belong to us and there is immense power in speaking our truth.
