- Readers and Writers Festival
Windrush Playback Stories is an intergenerational storytelling project which aims to celebrate, commemorate and educate people about their lived experiences and their contribution to British society by using personal stories as source material. Life stories are volunteered by audience members and then enacted on the spot by the Windrush Playback Storytellers, accompanied by musicians.
The stories are real life moments: future hopes, dreams and memories of the audience. Each story will be creative, memorable and fun with lots of improvisation where we playfully challenge the way in which Windrush can be celebrated, commemorated, taught and understood to ensure future generations understand its historical and contemporary significance.
