Seen the full schedule for the Accra Theatre Workshop‘s Storytelling Marathon today at the Nubuke Foundation and there’s something in there for everyone in the family. In case anyone’s interested, I’ll be taking part in two interesting events.

The Flash Fiction Workshop (10.00 am)

Nkenten collaborates with Flash Fiction GH and the Ashesi Storytellers Club on a morning session of readings from some of the rising stars of Ghanaian flash fiction, who will be training the audience in how to write their own flash fiction pieces.

The Nkenten Discussion: ‘Telling Tales: Are Our Stories Really Telling Our Story?’ (2.00 pm)

Yours truly will moderate a discussion featuring storytellers across different media – literature, music, video, photography, blogs, etc – on how well Ghanaian & African artists are representing Africa’s myriad stories in their work.

Invited guests include Dr. Sionne Neeley (co-founder of AccraDotAlt), Mamle Kabu (writer), Paa Koti (Twitter troublemaker), Kajsa Hallberg-Adu (blogger/lecturer), Kinna Likimani (educationist/blogger), Ghalileo (musician/artist), Wanlov the Kubolor (musician), Eli Tetteh (writer/communications specialist), Seton Nicholas (photographer), David Edem Dotse (writer/musician), Jonathan Dotse (writer), Joseph Oduro-Frimpong (cultural critic/lecturer), Nina Chachu (librarian) and more.
