Akwaaba’s Storytelling Group takes place on a Sunday from 2.30-4.30 pm. It is cofacilited by two to three practicing writers and each session is led by one of these writers. We provide a safe, creative space for participants to meet in solidarity and friendship, to explore experiences and share stories. Sometimes we discuss short texts and poems; sometimes we write, tell or record our stories.
We are looking for a practising writer to join us as another cofacilitator. If you are interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
