Celebrating Our Stories

Celebrating Our Stories is New Writing South’s ambitious two-year project which aims to record and celebrate the stories of older LGBTQ+ people in southeast England. Led by theatre director Dinos Aistidou and supported by Arts Council England and the Baring Foundation, the project will culminate in a festival of verbatim theatre in 2020.

LGBTQ+ writers wanted for Celebrating our Stories!

We have now reached the stage of the project where we are looking for LGBTQ+ writers to respond to the stories we have collected in a series of writing workshops taking place in Brighton and Hastings.

Could you be one of our Story Gatherers?

We are looking for anyone interested in meeting, talking to, listening and recording the stories of older members of the LGBTQ+ community for our Celebrating Our Stories verbatim theatre festival
