York Conversations

We need your stories!
Are there some things about life in York you'd like to share? Or perhaps you have some family folklore, fantastic town stories, or vivid memories from your early life?

The York Festival and Know Your Nation are celebrating WA's oldest inland town, and would love to uncover more of York's vibrant living history. Share your York stories over a cuppa at our workshops on the weekends of April 29th & 30th April and May13th & 14th, and your story could form part of the "York Conversations" exhibition at The York Festival in September. All we need is just over an hour of your time - and your favourite story about life in our favourite town.

Prior bookings essential.

More information: 0468 558 288 or email knowyournation@gmail.com
Workshops: York Post Office at 134 Avon Terrace

Shaping Perth: the stories of our city

Shaping Perth: the stories of our city

We've collaborated with the Museum of Perth on an amazing interactive exhibit.  

Listening to a cross section of stories of Perth’s people is a reminder that despite changes to the city’s landscape, certain fundamental characteristics of the people of Perth remain unchanged. Whether a story from the turn of the century or though to the last few years, the ability of Perth people to make a mark on the city is reflected throughout the stories we share. Ours is a history of pioneering, sharing, serving and pushing boundaries.  The twelve storytellers provide just one snapshot of this fascinating place we call home.
