Sci Fi, Storytelling and Revolution!

Saturday 16 June @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

£10 - £30

Event Navigation

It’s back! Our workshop that asks:

Do radical stories have a role to play in world of Brexit, Trump and climate change? Can post-apocalyptic scenarios from novels and films be of any use for us except to make us more depressed?

In this workshop we’ll explore all these questions, hopefully showing that speculative fiction from writers such as Ursula Le Guin, Marge Piercy and Octavia Butler can provide vision and inspiration for our own troubling times.

We’ll also share practical storytelling techniques with which you can write your own sci-fi stories or put to use telling your story of change now.

All this will be done in an interactive and particiatory way – whether you’ve never read or watched anything that your might consider Sci Fi or whether you’re a self confessed geek – all are welcome!

This workshop is run by Resist + Renew and narrative coach Robert Holtom.

Tickets on sliding scale on eventbrite.
