Bread and Butter

Bread & Butter is a monthly dinner and storytelling event designed to make you think deeply about social issues. A new storyteller every month will share a personal story with 40 guests in the dining room at the Centre for Stories. Come along and make new friends, hear a new story, and get to know your community. Compulsory: open ears and an open mind.

On 26 July 2018, Emanuel Gherardi made his storytelling debut at Bread & Butter: Freedom Through Truth. His story begins long before he was born with events that transpired against the backdrop of World War II Italy and shaped many lives across many decades, travelling with them some thirteen thousand kilometres to Perth, Western Australia. 
Sandi Parsons 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. On 28 June 2018, Sandi shared her story with us at Bread & Butter. 
At Bread & Butter on March 29 2018, Matthew and Daniel Bacon shared stories about self-love, identity, and queer resilience. These two remarkable young men are natural storytellers bound to leave you with a lasting impression, and many laughs along the way.
