Response, Recovery and Resilience for the Persian Community During COVID-19

This project is an initiative born out of the desire to create free and accessible podcasts in Persian. Through developing audio material for the Persian community, this project focuses on making COVID-19 content accessible to isolated members of the community including the elderly, people with a disability, new arrivals or those living in a remote area.

Together We Face our Challenges and Conquer Them

Enabling Narratives

Enabling Narratives: a group of people with a disability living in the Cumberland area who are able to express themselves through creative writing and using their story to collectively publish a book. This group is specifically for people who are 18 years of age or over.

This project provides free and accessible online creative/expressive Writing workshops for residents of the Cumberland area, who live with a disability.

It provides a range of tools which enables the participants to express themselves in a positive way and build on their capacity, skills and confidence in a safe and supportive environment. The project gives opportunities to break down barriers of social isolation, as well as bringing people together to sustain meaningful relationships.

The end goal is that the stories by the participants will be collected to publish a book.

The weekly workshops are accessible to people who speak English or Persian (mainly Iranian and Afghani people). These workshops will be run in different days or times in order to  accommodate those who speak English as well as those who speak Persian.
