Conference: Storytelling as The Vehicle?

Following the launch of the Healing Through Remembering (HTR) Storytelling Audit in October, HTR are hosting a one-day conference on Storytelling entitled "Storytelling as The Vehicle?". The one-day event will take place on Tuesday 29th November in the Dunadry Hotel and will run from 9am to 5pm.

Two keynote speakers, Samsun Munn and Kevin Whelan, will address key topics, "Storytelling and Encounter" and "History, Memory and Testimony", with the aim of encouraging debate and discussion. The main objective of the conference is discussion and dialogue amongst those present in trying to answer some of the questions raised by the issue of storytelling, especially the concept of a collective storytelling process to deal with the legacy of the conflict in and about Northern Ireland.

The conference is targeted at those both working in the field of storytelling/ personal narrative and related areas and also those who have an interest in the role of storytelling in dealing with the past relating to the conflict in and about Northern Ireland. For more information click here.
