Citizen: The New Story Festival @ Word Factory, London

11 Nov 2017 - 1.00PM

Nationality, identity and belonging are among the most powerful and divisive concepts of our times and also lie close to the heart of our humanity.

In 2017 these themes have been the common Word Factory threads, bringing together writers with the voice and language to unravel art from artifice in a programme of salon readings, events, discussions and classes culminating in a two-day Citizen: The New Story Festival in November 2017.
