Back in December we had a brilliant evening of storytelling. We wanted to keep you updated with what is happening for Saheliya, the charity we have supported through Sē Balē.
Rania was one of our coordinating team for the event from Saheliya and she writes to all of us:
As we move in 2017, there’re a number of projects we’re exploring – all with a cause of making a difference in someone’s life, somewhere.
We’re now looking for artists and artisans to help create a unique event for the first of these: poets, IT-ers, musicians, planners, storytellers, project designers, illustrators, marketers, and more.
Get in touch with us at email@example.com to begin the adventure.
As we get set to leave 2016, VOX is already looking to 2017 and has a number of different ideas to explore, from small to big.
As soon as there’s more to share, you’ll be the first to know. If you don’t want to wait and wonder if there’s something you can be involved in designing then get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
What a brilliant night we had for SĒ BALĒ (She Tells).
The Storytelling Centre was crammed to hear Charlotte Bosseaux tell her personal story of abuse through translation in a way that was transformative, creating a safe space for three girls to tell their own experiences of abuse through storytelling, music and song, and illustration.
All the ticket sales together with donations in the “Lovely Bucket” on the evening so far have totalled £484. This will be used by Your Saheliya to enable their girls to participate in a creative and imaginative carnival in Liverpool.
VOXedinburgh encourages both the discovery and expression of our superpowers (talents and passion and experiences) and there is the opportunity for someone to discover theirs as a VOXgift. If you want to know more, drop us a line: email@example.com.
Thanks to everyone who made the evening possible: to all who came and to our tribe using their voices so others may find theirs:
