Storyteller Callout

Arts Margaret River are looking for storytellers to share their experiences for “Backstories 2022”.

This storytelling festival brings communities together, in various backyards across W.A. for listening to live music and stories.
In partnership with the Centre for Stories, they’re training people in the art of telling stories through an online course and live workshops.

You’ll develop the skills to craft and deliver a story for live audiences. Some will be invited to perform their own story at “Backstories Margaret River” in March next year.
