Backstories 2021

Backstories 2021 was a multi-sited storytelling festival located in suburbs of across Perth and regional Western Australia. Featuring locations in Margaret River, Fremantle, Midland, Quinns Rocks, and everything in between, Backstories annual festival provides opportunities for storytellers to share stories in local backyards.

Funded by Lotterywest, Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and the Centre for Stories Founders Circle, Backstories was held throughout the month of March to book-end the festival season.

The Aussie backyard is an important part of our national identity and we’re keen to share familiar cultural icons, such as the hills hoist and cricket stumps, to spaces where people come together to celebrate what matters here. Locals are invited to bring a picnic, join their community and neighbours, and hear stories from a range of different people, including some of our seasoned storytellers.
