The Family Project

Date: 20 June 2015, 10:00 – 17:00
Venue: The School of Life

Every family has a story to tell. But often we look for those stories in the distant past, painstakingly gathering a handful of dusty facts – when living relatives, of all ages, could tell stories that would make our toes curl, tears flow, or heads bonk to the floor in laughter.

Why do we let that precious material go to waste?

Using his experience as a journalist and a theatrical improviser, John-Paul Flintoff will share tips and insights into how you might best collaborate with your family to capture the everyday experiences that would otherwise slip forgotten into the past.

You’ll learn how to craft your personal memories into compelling written narratives, to record experiences in sketches and doodles – or just use audio.
