Alkimos Storytelling for Community Building

Alkimos Storytelling for Community Building recognised the value of storytelling in developing a community, and fostering a sense of place. In collaboration with the City of Wanneroo, Lendlease and LandCorp, the project included two phases: story collection and the development of a radio play. This project was jointly funded by Lendlease, LandCorp and the City of Wanneroo.

Story Collection

Three stories were collected from local residents in the fast-growing and diverse suburb of Alkimos, contributing to the City’s contemporary oral history project.

Thank you to our storytellers: Apolon Ivankovic, Nicole Guerrini, and Sophie Spooner.

Radio Play

Twenty year-8 students from St James Anglican School worked in groups of four to weave together a fun historical account of the Alkimos shipwreck’s last 70-odd years. This creative project gave students the chance to dive into research about the Alkimos ship and it’s ghosts, write short stories, workshop scripts, and record their stories to be produced into a radio play.
