Do you identify as a woman and South Asian? Want to share your unique stories? Join our Saga Sisterhood!
Saga Sisterhood is a transformative storytelling project for women from communities who identify as South Asian that come from non-performer backgrounds but all have something to say about love, friendship, belonging, family and identity.
Centre for Stories is excited to run the phenomenal Saga Sisterhood storytelling project once again in 2023. Saga Sisterhood was a huge success when we ran the project in 2019 with facilitator Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa. Check out some of the previous stories we produced here.
This year, Saga Sisterhood will run over four 2-hour workshops on Saturdays in October and November. Facilitated by creative writer, storyteller, artist, boxer and backyard comedian Shenali Perera, you will be in safe hands as we train you the fundamental skills of storytelling and provide you with an opportunity to share your unique story by the program’s end.
We are looking for stories about gender, family, love, intergenerational challenges, migrant experience, or any other experience of importance to you.
With your permission, your stories may be recorded and shared on our website, and there will be opportunities for live storytelling at events for those those who are interested.
Places are limited so that the workshops can be intimate and allow space for one-on-one story development. For this reason, participants will be selected by Centre for Stories after we have met everyone at the information session.
All workshops are completely FREE for participants. Saga Sisterhood was generously funded by the Alexandra & Lloyd Martin Martin Family Foundation (ALMFF).
Complete the form below to register your interest for the information session on Saturday 7th October. Expressions of Interest submissions CLOSE on SEPTEMBER 15th, 11:59PM AWST.
