Bettina Nissen, travelling storyteller from Queensland

Queensland storyteller Bettina Nissen is living the dream. Having purchased a small van and equipped it with some of the necessities of life and a story box full of stories, Bettina has set of on a road trip.

She arrived in Daylesford in time for the Words in Winter Festival. As part of the festivities, there is a family day in the beautiful historic Daylesford Town Hall. Here Bettina found herself surrounded by over 300 children and accompanying adults.

Bettina lived in Melbourne for many years and as well as attending to her own practice, generously mentored beginning Vic tellers strengthening the art of oral storytelling and its place in our part of the world.

Bettina will be on the road for five weeks. The Vic Storytellers welcome her with open arms and if you would like to keep up with her adventures you can visit her blog here.
