On the first Sunday of the month between February and November, storytellers gather in the RAW Garden and share stories.

Tatiana Scott is always there with her camera; its through pictures that Tatiana tells her stories.

Well I don't know what was in the air this month but the gathering was hilarious.
Dee (Duragh Devi Palanisamy) who has been leading the sessions decided it was time for some improv. As you can see, this group took to the game with gusto!

We had some young ones with us and they entered into the spirit. The wolf, as embodied by Alex, was a little scary!
And Jackie introduced her kamishibai storytelling to those who had not heard of this kind of storytelling.
 All in all, a top day.

And finally, for those of you who are not on Facebook, we'd like to share this with you. Mariam Issa the co-founder of the RAW Garden worked with her son Abdul Yusuf to create this beautiful record of a year of stories in the garden.

See you in the Garden next month when Fionnuala Smyth will be hosting the afternoon for Storytelling Australia Victoria. Details on our website.
