About the workshop

Saturday 3rd December

12pm – 1:30pm or 2:30pm – 4pm

Gallery 3 (art gallery), Peterborough Museum, PE1 1LF

Suitable for all ages and abilities. Children welcome and must be accompanied by an adult.

Led by Anita Nayyar and Malika Speaks.


This 90-min workshop is all about our stories – who we are, what we’ve experienced, and for our voices to be noticed by others. It will be a feel-good, energised atmosphere, where as a group we will play games, chat and write/draw/act some of our stories. Get to know new people, and share things about yourself in creative ways.

The workshop will involve moving around the room and standing for those who are able. Chairs will be provided for those who require them.

Saturday December 3rd is International Day of People with Disabilities, and this workshop is a chance to celebrate and come together in a creative environment.

About Anita and Malika

Anita Nayyar and Malika Speaks are Caravanserai Collective CERITA facilitators. They use games and movement to help people find their inner story and share it. 

CERITA creates a stage in which every person in the room is an actor, and every person’s character, values and experience is brought onto the stage. The method helps people to understand each other better, and see the world from other people’s point of view. Storytellers will come away at the end of the session with a communal story that’s ready for the stage!


About International Day of People with Disabilities

International Day of People with Disability takes place on 3rd December 2022 and is about:

● Celebration – to recognize and value the diversity of our global community, and to cherish the role that we all play, whatever our level of ability.

● Learning – to understand and learn from the experiences of people living with a disability;

● It is a day for optimism – to look towards the future and the creation of a world where a person is not characterised by their disabilities, but by their abilities;

● Action – where all people, organisations, agencies and charities not only show their support for International Day of People with Disabilities, but take on a commitment to create a world characterised by equal human rights.
