Palestine Gaza Strip

“Find Tell Share” is a podcast co-hosted in Sheffield by Chris Sissons, Market Together and Jemma Rosenthal, Creative Hearts.  It’s the storyteller’s podcast, featuring everything storytelling, especially if you use stories to promote your business or charity (and you should!).  We produce an edition once a month with a guest, watch out for it.

December’s Guest

December’s guest is David Mowat, Community Worker and Trumpet Player.

David Mowat

David is a community worker and trumpet player who’s experimented this last 20 years in using music and story to build community across differences. Notably he’s tried to bring black and white working class experience in a historical show of the cotton plant called King Cotton. More recently he’s focused on Palestine and Gaza. 

This link is to a promo of a show running next August (2021) at the Edinburgh Fringe called Longing Belonging and Palestine.

He uses his 10 minutes to tell the story behind a poem he wrote, the Quabbeth of Yaffa, about a wedding dress, and a woman called Reem Esmail Mahmued who lives in Gaza and is descended from Yaffa refugees. Through story he conveys the heart of the injustice and tragedy borne by Palestinians.

has always loved stories and these days strides the streets of Sheffield always on the lookout for a new story.  He was a Community Development Worker for 30 years and consequently is sceptical about almost everything. 

I’m a marketing coach, using stories to open up business development in surprising ways.  I underline the distinction between real and paid work.  Many people are unhappy because they cannot find time for their real work – as we unravel the lockdown, we’re all challenged to step up and offer the world our own unique insights.  They won’t always work but how else do we find the ones that do?
