Originally published at: https://decentered.co.uk/leicester-stories-update-no10/

This week we are continuing to gather stories and views about what it means to Build Back Better here in Leicester. Pop along to one of our events this week and share your thoughts and experience on what you want to see improve as we move on from the pandemic.

Community Media Café 10am – 12pm Tuesday, Bishop Street Chapel Café, Leicester. This is our weekly drop-in café session, and a chance to chat with other people who are interested in using DIY media to support positive change in their communities. You don’t need any special skills, just come for a chat and share your experience of supporting positive social change. We’ll provide a tea or coffee to get the conversation started.

Leicester Builds Back Better Stories Pop-Up 10am – 12pm Wednesday, Leicester Coffee House, Granby Street. We are looking to have record chats and conversations about what it means to Build Back Better here in Leicester. Pop along if you have a point of view you want to share, or an experience that you think we can learn from. We’ll record your contribution and share it in a podcast and radio programmes as part of the conversation about what comes after the pandemic here in Leicester.

Community Reporters Club 10am – 12pm Thursday, Documentary Media Centre: At the next Leicester Stories Community Reporters Club, we will be chatting with Robin Vallance about his exhibition of photographs about Leicester communities, that he’s hosted at the Bishop Street Chapel. Robin asks some great questions about what it means to belong in Leicester, including in what way people feel proud about living in Leicester, and what is involved in shaping our community life?

There are a limited number of places, so please Register Here.

Community Stories: We are always on the look-out for stories that we can capture and share via the Leicester Stories website. If you are a not-for-profit community group, a charity or civic society or mutual aid organisation, or a public organisation that has stories of positive social change that you want to share, please do get in contact.

Leicester Stories is supported by funding from the Audio Content Fund, and is being developed with assistance from De Montfort University, the Documentary Media Centre and Zinthiya Trust. If you need more information about the project and it’s aims, please do get in contact.
