Some photos to share with those of you who couldn't join us.
It was wonderful to share stories with new members and with those who have returned after a break from storytelling. In particular, it was a delight to share in the moment when Lana told a story for the first time.
Pics from north to south: Gerry Nelson (musician and co admin for the Mahabharata Project), David Demant (master of puns and punch lines!) Lana Woolf (performance poet and broadcaster taking her first steps as a storyteller), Ian McNally (co host Storytelling Nights at the Elwood Lounge), Toby Eccles (the go-to person for Australian Folklore and contributor to the Victorian Fairy Tale Ring), Katherine Phelps (co host of Sandbox Land)
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Thank you also to Kate, Louisa, Susan, Niki and Jackie (That'd be me.) I hope I haven't left any one out.
Special thanks to the City Library for allowing us to host WSD in the Gallery.
The Dutch Storytellers have set up a video channel where they collect stories from around the world. The idea is gaining momentum. If you would like to see the ones they have up so far, they are HERE
