“I like to close my eyes when I’m talking serious things”
A polyphonic work-in-progress by members of the Akwaaba Storytelling Group.
Akwaaba is a social centre for migrants in Dalston. Every Sunday we come together to build community over a shared meal. Akwaaba’s storytelling group is a safe, creative space in which members can tell and write stories in dialogue with others. This morning we invite you to listen to the words of Akwaaba’s storytelling group, and to hear directly the voices of people whose lives are exploited in political discourse, but who are rarely afforded a public voice.
Part of the Stoke Newington Literary Festival.
