The Power of Stories
June 14 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Stories have the power to change perceptions, to relieve burdens, to inspire, to provoke thoughts and feelings, and to promote empathy for the experience of others.
During Refugee Week 2021 Bradford for Everyone will be hosting a webinar where ‘Human Books’ – with Refugee or Migrant backgrounds – will talk about their journeys, how telling and recording stories matters, and what ‘home’ means to them. They will be joined by videographer, photographer and story-teller Tom Harmer who has helped a number of Bradfordians (born ‘n’ bred, or newly arrived), to share their stories in Bradford district’s People Library
The event will also feature the premiere of the People Library’s latest video based story about Rabea, a young Rohingyan woman who’s family fled Myanmar as Refugees, eventually finding their sanctuary and safety in Bradford.
