LGBTQ+ storytelling from Belfast to Beirut

Is it possible to queer traditional storytelling?
Who tells our stories and why does it matter?
And what makes a good story?

In this special event in partnership with British Council Lebanon, we explore storytelling traditions and forms and examine how these have been revitalised and enriched by exciting new queer voices.
Included in our panel are our Artist In Residence, seasoned storyteller Richard O’Leary, and Dima Matta writer, professor, actor and spoken word artist from Lebanon. Dima founded the popular storytelling initiative Cliffhangers in 2014, which has since become a vital space for women and LGBTQ+ people in Beirut to share their own stories.
Join us an informal and welcoming evening of storytelling and discussion.
