Musician, writer and filmmaker Stuart Murdoch is to be a guest speaker at the launch of our new guide to living with M.E., which has been informed by the experiences of people with M.E. and their carers.
Stuart Murdoch, lead singer of Belle and Sebastian, will be talking about his own experiences of living with M.E. at the event, which will be held from 7pm to 9pm at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh (43-45 High Street, EH1 1SR), on Wednesday 23 March 2016.
The event will also feature participants from our Scottish Storytelling Project, who will share their own stories of living with the illness
These will be followed by an interactive Q&A session chaired by Blythe Robertson (Scottish Government) and including healthcare professionals. The evening will end with a reception providing the opportunity to talk to participants and share experiences. There is no charge to attend the evening event and reception.
