For many thousands of years, Australia’s First Nations people have been telling stories through dance, song, paintings and spoken word – often around the campfire. These stories speak to the geography, value systems and cultural protocols of the country and people they belong to. But in this urban lifestyle, how will traditional storytelling be preserved? Take your seat around the proverbial campfire and hear from local storytellers Uncle Mickey O’Brien, Aunty Stephanie Gollan and Ema Bovoro. Presented online, this important work provides a special opportunity for young people to be immersed in our stories, share in our culture and language. Bookings essential.
