The Hiive are looking for 20 young storytellers from all backgrounds to be part of Homegrown Stories.

Young adults all over the world are fleeing countries, moving out, backpacking abroad and meeting new people, but how long has this been happening? Exactly how far back does our generational migration go?

As part of the project, you'll get to work with poet and activist Byron Vincent, to help write, rehearse and perform your own powerful true stories of migration. The project will lead up to a building-wide takeover as part of London Stories: Made by Migrants where you'll get to showcase your story.

Auditions will take place on Saturday 24 September 2016.  Details of the event are below:
