Karibu in Swahili means Welcome – oral literature workshops

Welcome to an online oral literature workshop which is facilitated by a writer and a trained counsellor with the aim of bringing people together. As the world goes through very unprecedented and challenging times, we want you to know that you are not alone and that you matter. Your voice matters. Your background is important.

In a respectful, non-threatening, secure and welcoming online environment, we will explore oral literature from different heritages. This may include poems, folk tales, creation tales, myths, songs, legends, proverbs, riddles, tongue twisters, recitations, word games, life histories, or historical narratives. Anything that you remember from your background or culture.

Everyone is very welcome and appreciated – to teach, grow, learn from each other, and use your own background and words to come together.
