Alongside these performances, the GCSP will offer to some of its guests the opportunity to better understand the power of storytelling during an informal workshop at lunchtime. Ms Hedda Krausz Sjögren, diplomat, award winning playwright and theatre producer, will run this workshop based on the play Seven that relates the real life stories of seven women’s rights activists from seven countries. It has been toured in more than 30 countries and has already put over 1000 politicians, actors, athletes and activists on stage. This is an event by invitation only.
