Story Events


To help facilitate conversations around abortion in local, small group settings, the project is also available as a listening workshop.  Anyone can host a workshop and you can even have one in your living room!  We will provide you with the audio format the stories & a facilitation guide which you can use to guide a group discussion around abortion & the 8th Amendment.  The format is loose, but we do require that the facilitator remain neutral and not project their opinion on the group, but rather, allow the group to reach a independent conclusion.

Format

  • Group will listen to three stories, one story at a time.
  • The group will discuss each story, guided by the facilitator.
  • The aim of the workshop is to help participants understand the many nuances involved in having an abortion by allowing them to step into the shoes of the woman who is sharing her story.
  • The goal is not to force participants to vote Yes or No but to allow them to make up their own mind in a safe space.

Requirements

  • Any groups or individuals may host an event.  Workshops have been held in cafés, pubs and living rooms – whatever space you feel comfortable in.
  • A phone + internet / mp3 player is required to play the audio. A speaker is recommended if your group is larger than 4 people.

Please get in touch if you would like to host an event.
