The evolution of storytelling: written lies or spoken truth?

Sandra Phillips

This event is now in the past.

Oral history is the oldest form of sharing knowledge and culture, but in our rapidly changing world has this voice been silenced?

Join us for a conversation about the changing role of storytelling in Indigenous Australia, featuring an esteemed panel of storytellers, including: musician Fred Leone (Impossible Odds Records); Indigenous cultural awareness educator Mary Graham (UQ); publishing and literature researcher Dr Sandra Phillips (QUT, pictured); and actor Tibian Wyles (Black Diggers, QTC).

Each panellist will offer their unique perspective to a discussion spanning topics such as the validity of oral history versus written history, the relevance of modern storytelling, and questioning who our stories really serve.

This event is part of the A night by the fire with Aboriginal storytellers event series, including the conversations: Poetry with Samuel Wagan Watson, Music with Kaylah Truth and Theatre with Paula Nazarski.
