Stories from Home is an intimate live storytelling event shared online through Zoom. Featuring different storytellers, it invites audiences to listen and learn about a diverse range of people. Told from first person perspectives, you will hear how people make sense of the world, what matters to them, and why stories are as important now as they ever were. You can support the Centre as much as you wish with ‘Choose What You Pay’ tickets. Starting at $5, this is a way to support community artists during this time.


This week’s storyteller is Sandi Parsons.

“Despite society’s expectations, which disabled me far more than my body did, I have outlived my expiry date many times over.”

Sandi considers her guardianship of gifted lungs one of her many victories in her ongoing battle with Cystic Fibrosis. She was 38 when she underwent a double lung transplant. Sandi’s story explores her lifelong battle with Cystic Fibrosis, and the fulfilling life she has managed to create for herself despite its ongoing challenges.
