Stories have the power to move people. Our lives have many stories within them —- what we consider important, what we value, our hopes and how we are the way we are; our work is one such story about us. Whether it is with an organisation or a personal project, how do we create stories about our work? How do we understand our relationship with it; what excites us about it, what it means to us and why do we do what we do? Once we start thinking about the stories behind our work, how do we then move people with these stories and find connections with others around us? 

Join us as Swati Sambrani guides us to recognise and articulate the skills, know-hows, values and hopes interwoven into our work. Inviting us to reflect on our journey with any piece of work, the session will focus on discovering the values and hopes we hold close in life and understanding how they translate into what we do. Through group activities and sharing, the session will help us unearth the stories behind our work and create proposals for actions based on what we hold important.

This programme is exclusively for 18–25 year olds. 

This session is conducted as part of our engagements for the MAP OSCH Collective. The MAP OSCH (Our Shared Cultural Heritage) Collective is a community for young people (18-25 year olds), to engage with the arts and culture sector. The collective is for, of and by young people — to explore our shared identities and interests through art.
