Story Sharing Café

Here you can find dates and info about the upcoming Story Sharing Cafés!

People, Simply Campaign

Story Sharing Universum is a part of People, Simply campaign by Amnesty Finland, Finn Church Aid and the Finnish Red Cross. The campaign wants to start a change towards a more multi-voiced, compassionate and equal Finland. It also shows that despite our different backgrounds, we have a lot in common  – memories, feelings and dreams for the future. We all are #peoplesimply!

What unites us as people? Whose story would you like to hear, and what would you like to tell about yourself? Whose voice is left unheard in our society?

We seek answers to these questions in the People, Simply Story Sharing café. People from different backgrounds sit around the same table, and with instructions from the Story Sharing Universum theatre group everyone is invited to listen and share. The theatre group instructors have their own stories to share too. Some of them came to Finland as asylum seekers, and some came because of studies or love.

Välkomna till ett avslappnat berättarcafé där immigranter, asylsökande och infödda finländare kan träffas vid ett cafébord och lyssna till varandras historier handledda av Story Sharing Universum gruppen. På programmet har vi inbjudna historieberättare, levande musik och en öppen mikrofon del. Vi pratar åtminstone engelska, svenska, finska, arabiska, franska, ryska, litauiska, urdu, spanska, pashto, farsi och dari. När vi möts som främlingar kring ett cafébord är vi alla berättare och åskådare. Tillsammans leker vi en enkel berättarlek. När alla är jämlika och har samma utgångspunkt så är ingen ett objekt eller subjekt, det finns inget dom och oss. Det finns bara vi.

Evenemanget är gratis, men boka gärna en sittplats på Facebook (@StorySharingUniversum), via e-post universum@universum.fi eller ring 09-611003 (må-fre 11-16)!

Story Sharing Universum är ett projekt som vill främja kontakten mellan människor med olika bakgrund och kulturer genom att dela historier ur det egna livet. Projektet som fick sin start 2014 består av berättarverkstäder i flyktingförläggningar och av öppna Story Sharing Caféer runt om i Finland.

Under 2014-2015 förverkligade gruppen den deltagande teaterföreställningen Under The Same Roof, stories from near and far på Teaterhuset Universum i Helsingfors. Då utvecklade vi också våra arbetsmetoder kring delade historier och samlade den arbetsgrupp som nu bildar kärnan av vårt Story Sharing Universum /Story Sharing Café koncept. Vår mångkulturella arbetsgrupp på ca 20 personer har under 2016 -18 ordnat mer än 25 Story Sharing Cafeer och berättarverkstäder i flyktingförläggningar, föreningar och kulturcentrum runt om i Finland för mer än 1600 deltagare. Projektet har under de senaste åren rönt uppmärksamhet och uppskattning både som konstform och som integrations- och kommunikationsverktyg. år 2016 – 17 har SSU varit en del av Helsingfors stads integrationsverksamhet och blev 2017 utsedd till årets teaterbragd av Finlands Teatercentrum. År 2018 tilldelades projektet Stina Krooks teaterpris.

The Story Sharing Café is a part of the project Story Sharing Universum, which aims to help people of different nationalities and cultures to meet each other by sharing stories from their lives. The project has two parts: the public Story Sharing Cafés and storytelling workshops at reception centres and immigrant associations.

The Story Sharing Café is a social gathering where sharing your own everyday experiences and listening to others is made easy and fun! All you need is an open mind and an interest for new people. We start by sitting in small groups at coffee tables and sharing our everyday experiences and memories – small or big – guided by the members of the Story Sharing Universum group. Our special storytelling guests, skilled musicians and open story sharing mic make for a heart-warming and thoroughly enjoyable event!  Languages (at least): English, Swedish, Finnish and Arabic.
