Anti-Racism Storytelling Pathways

Collaboration with Beyond the Border & People Speak Up.

Anti-Racism Storytelling Pathways is a new two year programme to embed anti-racist storytelling practice across Wales.

The project will see three freelance Contemporary Cyfarwyddion roles (Resident Storytellers) and one Producer linked to the Mycelium Storytelling Hub, a collective of organisational partners and freelancers working to uncover less frequently heard stories and voices across Wales.

The Contemporary Cyfarwyddion and Producer will work individually and with communities to develop co-created cultural programmes, which celebrate the rich and diverse stories of our shared heritage. The programme will be supported by organisational partners initiating artform-focused anti-racist training and organisational anti-racist action plans, working actively and assertively to be anti-racist.

This project will be delivered by a partnership between Beyond the Border Wales International Storytelling Festival and People Speak Up, two organisations with a strong track record of strengthening and showcasing diverse stories of communities in Southwest and across Wales, through the Mycelium Storytelling Hub.
