Verbal and Culture Night 2021

We at Verbal are delighted to be taking part in Derry City and Strabane District Councils Culture Night 2021 celebrations. Here, at Verbal, we believe that everyone should live in a world where every story matters. A world where everyone – regardless of ability, background, or circumstances – should have access to the resources and opportunities to tell their story.

For several years Verbal has hosted various events in celebration of Culture Night, always proving to be fun and enjoyable sessions for all. This year, we are offering several different sessions for members of the public to sample some of what Verbal has to offer, including joining a Reading Room, sampling a Digital Storytelling session, Visual Storytelling session or trying an introduction to Creative Writing. Register online to join our digital sessions!

Reading Room Session: 

Using the Reading Rooms model, Verbal’s aim is to build positive relations through stories, conversation, and shared experience between people from all different backgrounds. In celebration of Culture Night 2021, we are inviting the public to join in a Reading Room session, to listen to a story, share their thoughts and take part in a fun conversation.

Session Info: Friday 17 September @ 4pm & 6pm. Digital Session Via Zoom.

Visual Storytelling Session:

Come join us for a fun filled Visual Storytelling session and sample our programme. Supported by our experienced team of facilitators we will enable beginners to have fun picking up the pencil to draw and move on to using materials at hand, from around your home to create a collage artwork that represents you.

Digital Storytelling:

We welcome the public to join us in a Digital Storytelling session and sample the programme by using digital technology to explore ways to tell a story with just you tablet or smartphone. The session is supported by our experienced team of facilitators.
