Storytelling Festival

The Glen Eira Storytelling Festival celebrates the sharing of stories in many forms. It’s a unique festival for people of all ages, interests and budgets.

Storytelling Festival performers tell captivating, thought-provoking and meaningful stories reflecting our rich, diverse community. These stories help shine light in dark corners and unite communities.

The Storytelling Festival runs for 16 days in June and July each year. There are a range of events across Glen Eira City Council.

A tale of four generations of First Nations women, challenges of the #MeToo movement, cutting-edge digital survival games, and nostalgia and the 'burbs were among the stories in our 2019 Storytelling Festival. Check out the 2019 Storytelling Festival program (PDF) to discover all the incredible performers who shared their inspiring stories.

We cancelled the 2020 festival to protect the community against COVID-19. This year is looking brighter and we look forward to sharing stories in a new light.
