World Storytelling Day: WISHES. 22 March 2015

You're invited to ...
a Storytelling Australia Victoria event

World Storytelling Day 
Melbourne’s finest storytellers will delight you with tales full of quirky wonder and, of course, wishes! This is an adult family friendly event so feel free to bring a friend or two or three, and a cushion and be transported in the world of story.

Is it your wish to be a storyteller? Do you fancy telling a story? Let us know and we’ll pop your name in the hat, and at 3 pm the floor will be open for the ‘Wishes – Story Slam’ and you can tell a tale between 3 – 5 mins in length. Now’s your chance to make your wish come true!

WHEN: Sunday March 22
WHERE: City Library 253 Flinders Lane in the Gallery Space (upstairs, alternative access)
TIME: 1.00 - 3.30
SPECIAL GUEST:  Gerry Nelson on piano.

A special thanks to The Dutch, and in particular, Melanie Plag, who has been a great inspiration to  the Victorian storytellers, encouraging us to share stories, not just locally but globally via videos and Skype on World Storytelling Day. Last year Storytelling Victoria held its first gathering for WSD and as a result, decided that this was an event to be celebrated annually.

This symbol is now used all around  the world  and  you can use it too but please acknowledge Mats as the creator. A gift from a Swedish storyteller to us all. You can download it HERE

  1. Wow!! The concept of this event is quite unique. I really like it. I was wondering if there are any NYC events that are based on this concept! I would love to attend these events with my kids.
