Kingdom 1000: with artist Rebecka Eriksson

Start time: August 4, 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 youthforhumanrights. In this episode we are joined by Rebecka Eriksson, a Norwegian artist and seamstress who has worked on commission for history societies, clothes stores, and even cafés. Rebecka will doubtless inspire you to #GetCreative with ordinary household objects, transforming them into beautiful representations of folklore, history, equality and diversity. Better not tell the Venerable Bede what she'd do if she got her hands on his library, though... After some medieval storytelling and a discussion with Rebecka, there will be a live Q&A with the audience who join us in the Café Zoom Room by clicking "Join story" at
