Funded by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Healthway, Act-Belong-Commit, the City of Mandurah and the City of Bayswater, Backstories was a one day multi-sited storytelling festival located in the suburbs of Western Australia held on March 14 2020.
Ron Bradfield Jnr is a saltwater fella from Bardi Country, north of Broome but grew up in Geraldton, WA. He now calls Whadjuk Boodjah, his home. Ron has been accused of many things, but he swears he’s just a storyteller – who gets to hear a fair few too! At Backstories, Ron shared the story of a West Australian and a Victorian – an unlikely friendship and its impact across a lifetime.
