Storytelling at the Williamstown Literary Festival

The Williamstown Literary Festival offered Storytelling Vic a session  to promote our organisation and our events. While inviting broad discussion and guests from afar into Hobsons Bay, the Festival has a strong local (western suburbs) focus.

The Literary Festival is situated in the Williamstown Town Hall which is  connected to the library, making a fluid space for 'festivalising'! It was particularly apt that we presented in the Library as we are fortunate to have attracted Hobsons Bay Library as a partner for our monthly gathering, Fabled Nights in Newport, giving us the Newport venue for no cost.

Several of Story Vic's 'westies' stepped up to the stage and did us proud, sharing true tales, fairy tale, and a little recitation. Dee represented our monthly event in the RAW Garden, which she now hosts for Storytelling Vic.

Our little video gives you a taste of the event.

Many thanks to the storytellers who gave of their time and talents to promote Storytelling Australia Victoria. As supporters of the Williamstown Literary Festival, we were well recognised alongside other fine organisations and individuals.

And thank you to Alex Kharnam and Miles who filmed and took stills of  'Before there were Books, there were Storytellers' so we can share something of the event with those of you who couldn't join us on the day.
