Stories change the world! Based in Dundee, Wind&Bones run workshops worldwide in which they explore how storytelling and writing can create social change.

They've worked with grassroots organisations and multi-national NGOs, helping participants power-up their narrative skills and discover more about themselves through interactive workshops. And now they are coming to Wigtown. Drop in and join them for free in our outdoor venue The Gardens at any time between 11am and 1pm on Saturday 24 September.

Hannah and Will (whose book Hello, Stranger celebrates the power of welcoming strangers into your life) will be inviting visitors to create and share micro-stories about unexpected meetings and random, life-changing encountes. After all, who knows where chance will lead?
