Storytelling about ‘Other’ Cultures

Hay Festival 2019, 

In today’s multicultural world, fostering an understanding of cultures different to our own has become increasingly important. One powerful way to achieve this is by using storytelling to break down barriers and develop ‘radical empathy’. Gilligan is a bestselling author and Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Birmingham. She is also an ambassador for the global not-for-profit Narrative 4.
