Nne Agwu Afrakan Storytelling Retreat 2020 

Nne Agwu is a 4-day family storytelling festival to inspire the creative well-being of the melanin rich UK communities and support the evolution of the oral tradition of storytelling.

 

Nne Agwu run innovative workshops and master classes for community participants and emerging storytellers/ artists respectively. We provide a safe space to try out and develop new work. There will be an emphasis on using modern day events to create contemporary folktales.

 

The aim of the Nne Agwu Afrakan Storytelling Family retreat is to:

*promote our culture and celebrate the artistry of the oral traditions of storytelling.
*create new stories for the genre and provide a platform nurturing emerging and professional storytellers.

*reconnect with the natural environment and develop our creative and spiritual well-being.

* Create an Afrakan storytelling village on the landscape of our motherland and Britain.

 

Each year we honour: an esteemed ancestor from our community with an opening ceremony curated in collaboration with participants.
