Eric Ngalle Charles & Jenny Valentne

I Feel At Home Away From Home

Venue: Baillie Gifford Stage

Eric Ngalle Charles is a poet, author and playwright who has claimed asylum in Wales. His uplifting story describes how literature and creative writing helped him to overcome his hasty departure from Cameroon when he was 17, how he survived being a victim of human trafficking and living on the streets in Russia before eventually coming to live in Wales.

Jenny Valentine, YA writer and 2017 Creative Wales Hay Festival International Fellow, interviews Eric to explore the power of empathy and creativity through writing.
