Walking Tour Training Programme, Writing on the Wall

Are you a budding historian looking to learn new skills? Or just a passionate storyteller? Our upcoming Walking Tour training programme may be for you. 

Since 2011 Writing on the Wall have delivered their Creative Heritage model, through a series of projects working with community participants and archives to uncover and creatively interprete hidden histories. Through these we have developed a number of successful walking tours around such histories, including: 

George Garrett 

Great to Race Riots 

L8 Law Centre 

Dorothy Kuya 

The project will begin with an introductory session on Thursday 18th July, followed by weekly Saturday walking tours and debrief sessions. The project will also include script writing sessions and digital resource packs that will equip participants with the knowledge and confidence to deliver their own walking tours.  

Once the training programme is complete, participants will have paid opportunities to deliver our Creative Heritage walking tours during our festivals, and as requested by groups. Our walking tours have had great success during WoWFEST and our Black History Month festival and are regularly requested by university and trade union groups.
