State Library of Victoria

The evolution of storytelling.
'The storytelling tradition is as old as humankind, but since the technological revolution much of our storytelling happens on screen or online ...' So this event was promoted at the State library of Victoria. It was a privilege to part of a panel discussion on oral traditions and contemporary formats alongside Michelle Rayner from Radio National and Gabrielle Wang, a superb author and artist. Gabrielle brought along her hand-painted scroll, which if unwound would have spread half the length of the room. I was delighted to see a scene depicting a storyteller and feel inspired to capture some contemporary images of my fellow tale spinners at work.
