Event postponed

Due to the nationwide rail strike planned to take place on the day of this event, 27 July, we are very sorry to inform you that we have had to postpone this event.

This event will now be taking place on Tuesday 6 December 2022. You can register for the new date below.

We will be contacting all those who have already registered to notify them of this postponement. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.

Malian artist Bintou Soumbounou is the MSF ambassador in the fight against female cancer in Mali. "As an ambassador of the campaign, I invite all women to come for screening. It's free and it's in all the CSCOMs of the Bamako CIV during this month of March. Go ahead, let's mobilize against cancer." Caption

As human beings, we all want to make connections: to reach out to others, to learn from them, to express ourselves and to share our experiences. One of the most vital ways we do this is by telling each other stories. 

Drawing upon this fundamental human desire, MSF is delighted to invite you to an evening of storytelling on Tuesday 6 December in Oxford. 

Our storytellers are MSF staff, who will recount short stories that paint vivid, unique and personal images.   

It promises to be a compelling evening of personal anecdotes, bringing insights into the people, communities and stories that make up MSF. 

Expanding on the theme ‘Hope’, they will take us behind the headlines and statistics to share stories which show that hope is something that stays alive and drives people forward in even the most difficult of circumstances.  

Drinks and light refreshments will be available to purchase at the venue.
