Come along to this relaxed evening of family storytelling by the banks of the River Clyde – being delivered by Magic Torch Comics as part of Refugee Week – to enjoy traditional stories, ballads and poems in Arabic, Scots and Gaelic. You’ll be invited to pass around all the different tables, enjoying food and hearing stories, told by people from across the community of Inverclyde.
In preparation for this event, artists and storytellers will lead workshops for Inverclyde’s local schools and New Scots community – which includes families from Syria, Sudan and Afghanistan – giving participants the opportunity to research and retell stories that are important to them.
An illustrated collection of the tales will be available free to all audience members on the evening.
Further information and booking details will be available on the Beacon Arts Centre’s website soon. The event is free but ticketed.
