EAST VOICES: Call-out for New Storytellers

Audio version of text:

A special welcome for BSL users:

Do you have a love of stories? Do you listen to stories and long to tell your own?

We are looking for East Londoners who want to learn the skills of storytelling. World-class professional storytellers Sef Townsend & Shamim Azad, alongside artistic director Paul Burgess, will guide you through a process to help you share a story which will be part of the East Voices Digital Archive.

East Voices offers new storytellers free coaching with three sessions including a one-to-one session. You will have the choice of sharing a traditional story from your own cultural heritage or to tell a story from your own lived experience. These stories will be recorded and shared on the East Voices Digital Archive.

We actively welcome participants from all communities in East London. BSL interpretation will be available for all sessions along with extra support for individuals with language or access needs. For BSL users we welcome deaf or hard of hearing participants living anywhere in the Greater London area.


  • Session 1 Tuesday 6th July 6.30pm – 8pm via ZOOM
  • Session 2 Saturday 10th July 2pm – 3.30pm via ZOOM
  • A one-to-one session for each participant. These will take place between the 12th July and 9th August with specific dates & times to be mutually agreed.
