  • Do you have a story to tell about Halifax? We want to hear it! IOU are developing a new show with Square Chapel and The Piece Hall which will celebrate the real words of people from Halifax and the local area.

    Writer and performer Jemima Foxtrot will lead you through this two hour creative writing workshop on location-inspired stories. You will develop your own story about your experience of Halifax and then use IOU’s sound booth to produce an audio recording of your writing. Your story could be used in The Storytelling Bus which will run for eight weekends from May 2019.

    Specially selected stories from the workshop will be used to create a soundtrack for The Storytelling Bus - an alternative sightseeing journey totally unique to Halifax. Passengers sit on the moving bus wearing headphones, listening to individual stories as they take in the sights of Halifax.
