Voice Soiree: Storytelling in Joondalup

Over free food and drinks, hear moving real life stories from three diverse storytellers on the Indigenous Voice to Parliament.

Sep 27, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Joondalup Reception Centre

Join us at the Joondalup Reception Centre for a FREE community event, including all-paid food and drinks, for a moving evening of storytelling, yarning and connection.

You will hear the real life stories behind why our trained storytellers are voting YES at the upcoming Voice to Parliament referendum. Our storytellers come from First Nations and culturally diverse backgrounds. This won’t be a dry, factual information session – it will be human storytelling at its finest. However, there will be opportunity at the end for an audience Q&A with the storytellers to ask more questions about their stories and the Voice.

We are pleased to announce our storytellers will be Cindy Solonec, Gerrard Shaw, and Lakshmi Kanchi, and our facilitator for the evening is Ron Bradfield.

Doors open at 6pm and stories begin around 6:15pm.

We encourage people of all backgrounds and political leanings to come – however all conversation and questions must be done respectfully. Racism or disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated. 


Tickets are free but you must register to attend. Food and drinks will be consumed on a self-serve basis. Catering will include both vegetarian and meat foods, and all foods are halal certified. If you have any allergies, you must email us and let us know beforehand at
