575 STORIES

575 Stories is a free storytelling programme for local women.

Over the course of five weeks six women will tell, create and share stories in the exquisite and unique surroundings of National Trust property, 575 Wandsworth Road. Home of Kenyan author, Khadambi Asalache, 575 Wandsworth Road is a beautiful work of interior design. Every surface is covered in intricate wooden carvings, put in place by Khadambi as a means of covering up recurring damp issues.

Participants find inspiration in the rooms and objects of the house, using them as a starting point to create their own tales. The aims of the project are to encourage creativity, imagination and integration.

Stories of home and beyond: stories of kitchens; recipes and remedies; tales passed on from grandparents; stories of travel; songs and worship; memories and dreams.

575 Stories is run in partnership with the National Trust and Iqra Primary School VA.
