WORLD STORYTELLING DAY: March celebrations 2016


It was only a few years ago Storytelling Vic decided to celebrate World Storytelling Day. We began with a small event at The Boyd in Southbank and followed up the following year with stories in the City Library. This year we have partnered with Readings book shops and the RAW Garden and we have events scattered across Melbourne. Hopefully there is one near you.

March 6 Sunday:  12.00 - 2.00
Join us in the RAW Garden in Brighton to celebrate both International Women’s Day and World Storytelling Day, to hear stories, true and traditional. Come along and be awed, inspired and entertained by storytellers spinning tales of strong, wild and wise women. Perhaps you will have a story to share?
