Following on from the highly successful Life Giving Stories last year, a live storytelling event featuring inspiring and life-affirming stories of individuals and families from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) families who have been touched by organ and tissue donation, MHCS is seeking people from CALD backgrounds to tell their stories.

The storytelling event is envisioned to increase awareness of organ and tissue donation and its benefits to CALD communities.

In collaboration with Performance 4a, MHCS will produce a special presentation to highlight the personal experiences of recipients and donors. Selected individuals will be mentored by Performance 4a’s master storytellers William Yang and Annette Shun Wah to showcase their story.

They will conduct workshops to assist participants to tell their stories confidently and engagingly. The live performance will also be recorded and be uploaded to our website and social media platforms to help spread the stories further.

If you’re interested in participating, come along to our Info Session in July. You do not need to have specialised skills or experience in writing or performance to participate. 

The Info Session will be held at:

School of Mechanics & Arts (SMSA)

280 Pitt St, Sydney (behind Town Hall)

Date: Saturday, 16 July 2016

Time: 11am - 1pm

Selected participants will be paid a honorarium of $200 each to cover food and transport expenses, and will be required to attend 2 half-day workshops to learn how to tell your stories.
