Kingdom 1000: with wordsmith John Row

Start time: August 11, 2020 6:00 pm BST

2020 marks 1,000 years since the UK's first equality law, which laid the foundation for the progress that led to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To celebrate and discuss this significant millennial, the World Storytelling Café is bringing together storytellers, historians, and creators to explore the themes of equality, diversity, and compassion. Your donations during this event will support Youth for Human Rights. In this episode we are joined by John Row, a wordsmith of poetry and stories who curates the spoken word spaces for various festivals – including the Cambridge Folk Festival and Glastonbury's Kidz Field. John will share tips on how you can #GetCreative with your own personal stories, and the reminiscences of those around you. Plus we'll hear how Chester was defended by a medieval "queen of the people"... After some medieval storytelling and a discussion with John, there will be a live Q&A with the audience who join us in the Café Zoom Room by clicking "Join story" at
