World Storytelling Day for Adults 2019

Our favourite time of year is inching closer; that time when people gather in galleries, libraries, theatres, homes and gardens ... and share stories in the language of their choice to groups young and old, large and small.

Storytelling Australia Victoria is hosting is 5th consecutive World Storytelling Day with the 2019 theme of myths, legends and epics.

Once again, we are back in the beautiful performance space in the Library @The Dock.

This year there will be eight Storytelling Australia Vic members stepping into the light and we have two special guests from overseas who have recorded stories for us. David Novak from the US is a veteran of the Sydney International Storytelling Conference and Kamini Ramachandran from Singapore, director of MoonShadow Stories and the Storytelling Centre Ltd and creative producer of StoryFest: International Storytelling Festival.

As well at the show, we will have displays of books and resources related to oral storytelling traditions.

We acknowledge the work our volunteers contribute to creating our events: Durgah Devi Palanisamy is the director of WSD for Adults and her team this year is Anna Manuel and Jackie Kerin.

We're excited!

*NOTE this is an adult storytelling gathering. We do have a WSD show for children on earlier in the day in The Dock Activity Space. Details to come.

WHEN: March 23
TIME: 2.00 pm - 4.30
WHERE: Library @The Dock Performance Space
