From your personal reaction, to the response of your community, this is an opportunity for us to come together to reflect on the year.

We particularly encourage participation from people who identify as ATSI, CaLD, LGBTQIA+, and living with a disability.

Please contact Jay Anderson with any questions or expressions of interest by January 14, 2021 – email jay@centreforstories.com

Please note that storytellers must be available for four training sessions in late January/early February on weekday evenings or weekend mornings, and to present their story during our Backstories festival – which brings friends, families and neighbours together in backyard across the suburbs of Perth together for storytelling – in March. Stories will also be published on our website.
