Join us for a practical exploration of The Aurus Project, a toolkit of applied storytelling approaches which may be used to support people who are experiencing or at risk of social exclusion. You will be led through some of the exercises, gaining an insight into how they can be used, adapted and developed when working with a range of groups in your own context.

Part of the Aurus Project Launch. For almost two years a team from Scotland, England, Greece, Hungary, and the Netherlands worked on the Aurus project, focusing on how to use storytelling in working with people and groups in vulnerable circumstances, including the most marginalised and isolated. Europe faces growing numbers of people at risk of and experiencing social exclusion. Mank think that their story doesn't matter, that they don't matter. The partners in this project believe everyone's story matters and that working with applied storytelling can help people realise their strengths and know how to use them.
