Anne E Stewart: Q'ld State Library October 15

Anne E Stewart is preparing to head north again.

This time she will be working at the State Library of Queensland

Storytelling Workshop with Anne E Stewart

Friday 15th October 2010

10.00am – 1.00pm

When Anne E Stewart started telling stories over 30 years ago it was all about developing a love of language and literature in young readers. But over the years she came to realise that storytelling caters to all ages and is an important tool for sharing cultural understanding, reflecting issues of social justice and supporting the unique makeup of various Australian communities.

In this workshop Anne will talk about these aspects while providing practical advice on developing programs for libraries. She will tell of the knowledge she has garnered working with indigenous stories and offer protocols she has developed over many years. The basics of storytelling will be explained and supported by an exploration of various libraries and their unique resources and clientele.

Anne is passionate and enthusiastic about her work and will inspire participants to develop their own storytelling skills and programs.

“Not a clever sharing of the mind alone, but rather a sharing of heart and spirit” Ruth Sawyer The Way of the Storyteller
