Fabled Nights in Newport: 20 October

 Fabled Nights in Newport is an open-hearted space for people who want to learn to craft true tales, traditional stories, tall tales and yarns; heart to heart and without notes. We welcome beginners and experienced folks. So come and strut your stuff, share what you know, try out a new story or tell a tale for the first time.

There's room for around 10 storytellers and we ask that stories be no longer than 10 minutes, give or take. We ask that stories be said not read.

Let kind hearts and commonsense prevail: racist and homophobic stories hurt people so please don't bring them to Fabled Nights
WHERE: Newport HUB 13 Mason Street, enter via the park (the new building)
WHEN: 7.30 pm - 10.30 pm
COST: $5.00 or $3.00 (Storytelling Vic and Newport Fiddle and Folk Club members). No Booking required.

* FABLED NIGHTS is an intergenerational event. Children welcome at parent/carers discretion

PARKING: There is free parking at the rear of the building. Coming from Mason Street, turn left at Durkin Street then left into the car park. Entry to the HUB is from the park.

This month's photo shows us celebrating the September launch of the Art of Oral Storytelling Journal, and initiative by one of our members Lana Woolf. On the screen is  storyteller Asha Sampath Skyping in from Chennai. 

October Special Guest
We have a special guest coming to the October evening, documentary maker Mojan Javadi. Mojan is keen to hear about the stories that touched your heart as a child that you have carried into adulthood. Perhaps you can remember the story or maybe only the essence has stayed with you?
Came and meet Mojan, hear about her project, and perhaps you can prepare a story to share. Read more about Mojan HERE.

October Fabled Nights will be co hosted by Vic storyteller  Matt McArthur. We are grateful to our members who support our events with hosting, hospitality and setting up and kitchen duties!

Matt is one of our science storytellers. Here he is in action. Kindly recorded for us by member Alex Kharnam.

Fabled Nights in Newport is a partnership event with Hobsons Bay Libraries and is supported by the Newport Fiddle and Folk Club.
