New Project - Forbidden Love

Forbidden Love is a new oral storytelling project with a focus on true stories about relationships, in all their forms: unlikely friendships, connections to place and things, heartbreak, distance, passion, and family tradition. Forbidden Love explores the complexities surrounding ‘taboo’ relationships.

Participants will work with Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa to craft their story into a cohesive first-person narrative and develop oral storytelling skills and confidence.

This project is funded by Centre for Stories’ Founders Circle and Lotterywest.

There are THREE phases for this project:
