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 Holden Sheppard.

Holden Sheppard is an award-winning Young Adult author born and bred in Geraldton, Western Australia. He has always been a misfit: a gym junkie who has played Pokemon competitively, a sensitive geek who loves aggressive punk rock, and a bogan who learned to speak French. Holden’s story is a cheeky, light-hearted recount of his romantic escapades on his gap year to Europe. Set in London in 2006, it tells the tale of gay bathhouses, experimenting with heterosexuality and a lover who never was.
