Our Mission: To create a vibrant, inclusive arts and cultural organisation that uses storytelling to inspire cohesion and understanding through rich and diverse programs.
The Centre for Stories is a place where stories are told, shared, and kept. It’s also a place where the craft of storytelling is taught, and learned. Founded in 2015 by Caroline and John Wood, our aim is to tell good stories in the hope of strengthening connections between people and encouraging a more inclusive and informed community.
We host live storytelling events, workshops and training sessions. We work in partnership with key organisations including the Perth International Arts Festival, the Western Australian Museum, and City of Perth to create projects rich in storytelling.
Our team is a passionate group of storytellers, writers, poets, sound and visual experts, book club leaders and administrators.
We are a not-for-profit organisation with charitable status.
