|Just so you know we have not forgotten you and are looking forward to better times when we can gather again, the GuestHouse Storytellers offers you this brief newsletter.
The Museum of Ordinary People (MOOP) is looking for storytellers to take part in the Newhaven Festival
Here’s a chance to practice your storytelling in a celebration of the ordinary lives of ordinary people. You do not require any special skills, just the willingness to share something about yourself and your life. I have seen some of MOOP’s exhibitions and they have been beautifully put together and are often very moving.
If you are interested, please contact them directly and they can give you whatever guidance you need.
Opportunity for storytellers from Newhaven and the surrounding area:
The Museum of Ordinary People (MOOP) is looking for storytellers to be part of an exhibition in Newhaven this autumn.
An open-air exhibition, Reflections will be on show as part of Newhaven Festival on Saturday October 17- Sunday October 18, 2020.
Audiences will be able to explore Newhaven by following an art trail from an artist-created map, and in doing so learn about the local people’s stories, history and heritage on their doorstep.
MOOP is looking for storytellers to interact with audience members as they explore the Newhaven art trail, to share personal or local traditional stories. Storytellers will be stationed at various points around the open-air, socially distanced exhibition, ready to engage with members of the public.
How to get involved:
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more, or to declare your interest in being a storyteller for Reflections
The Museum of Ordinary People (MOOP) is a pop-up museum that celebrates the ripples people leave behind, telling hidden stories using everyday objects.
The Hillcrest Centre has reopened but we are yet to work out how the storytelling can resume. In the meantime, Committee Member and Professional Storyteller, Jamie Crawford shares a story from earlier in the year, when the world started to change in ways we probably never imagined!
Café opens 6.30pm serving organic meals, snacks and cakes and a very warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Stories 7.30 – 9.30 pm on the second Tuesday of the month.
£7 in advance, £9 on the door
