Stories and Music are the Heartbeat of the Community


Sharing stories and celebrating our lives and cultures, is an essential part of wellbeing for both individuals and communities. In traditional societies, the storyteller is the one who weaves the threads of community together, through words, song and music. We all have stories to tell. As a contemporary storyteller, my role is to help facilitate spaces and places where stories can be created and shared. I enjoy designing special projects which strengthen community identity and create a sense of joy, hope and harmony within the community. Storytelling is an ancient, accessible, powerful tool for individuals and communities to make connections, to learn new skills, to discover new knowledge and to explore possible solutions to community issues.
