Our Story is a project led by four postgraduate students from City. It aims to create an online archive of stories shared between two family members to help bring about a stronger sense of local community and reclaim the art of storytelling. They are launching the project with the IslingtonFamily History Day on February 26 2011 which will take place from 10.00am - 5.00pm at Islington Museum on St. John Street.
Volunteer Story Facilitators and General Volunteers
Help make the event a success by enabling groups of two people to tell their story together. Enable them to both reminisce about the events that they will be talking about. Help them decide who will say what and how to pace the story.
You will receive training in how to do facilitate great storytelling by the project team in the run-up to the event.
Helping to make the event a success will contribute to a sense of personal wellbeing, but you will also be developing valuable facilitation skills which can make a real difference when you chair meetings in future.
Be there and help chronicle some of the history of real life people in the borough.
