GNM event

Join Great North Museum: Hancock in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne for a family workshop to discover the history of indigenous storytelling.

There are two time slots available: Saturday 21 November 11am-12noon and 2-3pm.

What are creation stories? How are creation stories told? This family-friendly workshop will introduce young audiences to Indigenous storytelling and creation stories drawing on the Great North Museum: Hancock’s Indigenous collections from North America.

Using crafting and storytelling, create your own creation stories or imagine an alternative, new world you would like to inhabit. You will be invited to share your stories at the end of the workshop and/or via the Museum’s online platforms.

A self-guided story trail will also be available to help you explore the Museum’s collections and other learning sources on Indigenous storytelling.

The Being Human Festival highlights the way in which the humanities can inspire and enrich our everyday lives, help us to understand ourselves, our relationships with others, and the challenges we face in a changing world.

This interactive event is organised by Northumbria University and the Great North Museum: Hancock.
