Truth, Reality, Fiction on a European Bed

Australian Fairy Tale Society 4th Annual Conference

Learn! Create! Meet! Explore! Discuss! Would we recognise an Australian fairytale if it came to our doorstep, lacking robes of ‘once upon a time’, looking a little bedraggled? How do we sort truths from transplants? Many ‘mattresses’ have unrolled in Australia — historical, cultural, interpretative, creative — and more await stimulation by that provocative pea (or gumnut), inducing dreams and imaginings. Awaken to the kiss of curiosity! What lies beneath? How might you respond, or create your own?

The Australian Fairy Tale Society is a national, non-profit group of intercultural, interdisciplinary fairytale lovers.
