The evolution of storytelling

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); Writer and comedian Steven Oliver; Indigenous cultural awareness educator Mary Graham (UQ); 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.

Venue: Auditorium 1, SLQ

This forum is the concluding event of the A night by the fire with Aboriginal storytellers event series, which included Theatre with Paula NazarskiPoetry with Samuel Wagan Watson and Music with Kaylah Tyson
