Stories & storytelling
are important tools of community.

Whether it's supporting individuals or communities
to tell their stories,

celebrating them in performance or other art forms or

using them to explore and expose issues,
stories are important.

Stories explore issues,
make statements, provide shelter and inspiration. If you want to celebrate or acknowledge an individual or group, if you want to describe a place or illuminate a problem or solution, tell a story.

Stories encapsulate information
so that important features of an event can be passed on from teller to listener in entertaining and relevant ways. In stories we find dreams, aspirations, histories and hopes.

Stories provide acknowledgement,
build self esteem, confidence and community health.
