The Plot in The Clearing - Emily Ghassempour

Sorry, this event has sold out

Join us for the first Plot in the Clearing event, a series of informal, salon-style, expert-led talks followed by question and answer sessions. Drinks and nibbles will be available throughout.

Emily Ghassempour, co-founder of books for change, joins us to discusses why diversity in stories matters.

Emily will talk about how, as a collective, we have a duty to help change the fact that 400,000 children and young people in the UK do not have any books at home and what we can do to increase repesentation, especially in children's literature.

Emily's grassroots activism and strong ties within the Folkestone community have helped build a campaign that has accessibility and education at its heart. Her talk will take in some of the themes of Creative Folkestone Triennial 2021 -‘The Plot’.
All Plot in the Clearing events are free and take place in The Clearing at Quarterhouse. Spaces are limited - do please book a ticket to ensure your place.
