RAW Garden Storytelling: September 3


RAW Garden Storytelling is a partnership event with Mariam Issa and the RAW Garden and Storytelling Vic. The Garden celebrates the uniqueness and aspirations of multicultural women through gardening, storytelling, crafts and cooking. Durgah Devi Palanisamy (Dee) from Storytelling Vic is our host. Dee will have a mix of special guests and story games and there is always a space for friends to tell a tale.
We value listeners and storytellers equally and take pride in welcoming newcomers to RAW.

In August, it was so cold, we had to decamp to the Community Centre over the road. But we'll be back in the garden for September. Thank you Tatiana Scott for the beautiful photos and to all the storytellers and listeners - brilliant tales of travel, risk and adventure!
One of the delights of the afternoon was the presence of mother and son: Mariam and Abdul. Abdul shared with us his memory of moving to Australia from Kenya as a ten year old. He thought he was going to see snow but the family arrived in Melbourne in November. He held onto the notion that he would eventually see snow in June but that was not to be. He has still never seen snow. And it never snows in Brighton East!
