Stories from Home is an intimate live storytelling event shared online through Zoom. Featuring different storytellers, it invites audiences to listen and learn about a diverse range of people. Told from first person perspectives, you will hear how people make sense of the world, what matters to them, and why stories are as important now as they ever were. You can support the Centre as much as you wish with ‘Choose What You Pay’ tickets. Starting at $5, this is a way to support community artists during this time.
This week’s storyteller is local writer and Backstories alumnus, Colin Archibald.
‘I’m fifteen years of age and I turn to my mother and say, “I wish I was white.”’ In this story, Colin shares his experience of growing up in 1980s London as a young black man. This raw and emotional story sheds light on overt racism, leadership, and the importance of embracing who you are.
