Re-Forming the Field

Brimming with triumph and tragedy, passion and hope, sport is a fertile ground for storytelling. But sport has also excluded and othered as many as it has welcomed. So how can we explore the possibilities on the pitch and use sport to tell our own stories?

Hear these sports-focused writers and artists explore pathways to sports writing, representation in sport storytelling, the creative possibilities in sport and how we can use sport to tell our stories.
