Stories on Fire: Sharing Lived Experiences with Climate Change

May 11 @ 9:00 amMay 12 @ 5:00 pm

Learn how to share your personal experiences with fire, smoke, and climate change.

In this two-day workshop, the editors of the University of Victoria’s Climate Disaster Project will teach you the trauma-informed process to create powerful first-person testimonies from fellow participants’ experiences of climate change.

Past testimonies have been published by Reader’s Digest, the Royal BC Museum, and The Tyee, and interviews from this workshop may be shared by similar publications and organizations.

Through learning how to compassionately listen to other people’s stories and telling them, you can help show the world that climate change isn’t something that’s far away. Instead, it’s something close at hand that’s affecting each of us in countless ways: from the smoke that keeps us indoors during the summer to the blazes that have taken so many homes away.

Please note, this event will take place over the course of two days:
Saturday, May 11th 9-5pm
Sunday, May 12th 9-5pm
