7th August: Ben Mali Macfadyen
Join us for an afternoon of storytelling and a facilitated workshop with Ben Mali Macfadyen. Ben will be exploring our relationship with nature through his own storytelling and will guide families to create their own stories, inspired by the natural world around them. Ben is a teacher, activist and community facilitator. He teaches nature awareness, nurture, inclusion and creativity skills with diverse communities across Britain.
He has collaborated with Glasgow based theatre group Eco Drama on Out to Play - a learning resource centred on outdoor learning through creative arts and drama - and has worked with young people and communities across Glasgow with the Village Storytelling Centre.
11th August: Tawona Sitholé
Join us for another afternoon of storytelling at the David Livingstone Birthplace!
This time we will be welcoming Tawona Sitholé from the creative collective Seeds of Thought.
Better known as Ganyamatope (his ancestral family name), Tawona's Zimbabwean heritage inspires him to make connections with other people through creativity-based learning. Poet, playwright, storyteller, musician and UNESCO artist-in-residence at the University of Glasgow, Tawona will be performing some of his own material inspired by the natural world.
