Backstories is a multi-sited storytelling festival located in backyards across Perth and regional Western Australia. In 2021, Backstories featured locations in Margaret River, South Fremantle, Midland, Quinns Rocks and more.
Backstories 2021 was made possible with funding from Lotterywest, Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, and Centre for Stories Founders Circle.
This story was collected at our North Perth backyard. It features Martha Weruing, who changed her approach to establishing herself in a new country as a result of COVID-19.
