Anna Manuel from Heads and Tales Story Services is not only a reading specialist but she is an enthusiastic practitioner of Kamishibai storytelling and a key member of the AKA (Australian Kamishibai Association). Anna is also well-known for her work as a bilingual storyteller (Filipino/English) and her work in this intercultural space.
Dani Bücheler-Scott from Wolf Publishing has also made her mark in the bilingual space. Dani brings her love of language and landscape from her childhood in Austria, a passion for Kamishibai storytelling and collaborative events and creations.
Matteo has been telling stories for more years than you've had hot breakfasts. He is a familiar face in schools, festivals and libraries around Victoria. He brings gentle magic and smiles where ever he goes.
Susan Hall is one of our favourite librarian storytellers. Her knowledge of folk tale and the oral tradition runs deep. When not attending to library and grandmother duties, Susan is a regular at our monthly gatherings at Fabled Nights in Newport.
What would we do without Alex Kharnam! Alex is a regular at all our events. He is our videographer, our cheer squad our walking talking encyclopedia. A writer, camera man, props builder and all round problem solver. Alex has been working on a Greek myth with a twist.
And finally our wondrous host and hard working Storytelling Australia Victoria volunteer, Durgah Devi Palinasamy from Deelightful Tales. We thank Dee for offering to curate World Storytelling Day for the second year in a row. We know how time consuming events are to plan. We also thank the Storytelling Vic volunteers who have offered to help on the day. Without you, it wouldn't happen.
