The Ways of Winged Ones and Women

Thanks to Melbourne City Council Grants, The Dock Library and Storytelling Australia Victoria for supporting a new idea and collaboration.

These are stories inspired by the migratory shore birds who travel the East Asian Australasian Flyway and migratory women from our past.

Thanks to Anne E Stewart for curating the series, Teena Hartnett for being an awesome story collaborator, John Kean for painting the birds for me and my beautiful friend, Christine, who took a few photos.

Moorabool Literacy Trail, Bacchus Marsh 2014

Had a wonderful day in Bacchus Marsh taking stories to the streets for the Moorabool Literacy Trail. The main street of Bacchus Marsh was lined jugglers, fire eaters, a dog circus but most significantly the trail was peppered with storytellers and readers. The trail has been going for some years and has been honoured with awards. Yesterday over 1300 people enjoyed the entertainment; this is an event where the whole town is invited to participate in the celebration of literacy. 

In their own words: 'The Literacy Trail invites primary and preschool children across the Shire to participate in a number of fun activities designed to promote their love of reading, writing and counting.
The Literacy Trail is brought to the streets of Moorabool thanks to the State Government’s Best Start Program. It brings together local business, emergency services, health and welfare organisations, community groups and local government, as well as schools, kindergartens, childcare centres and playgroups.'
