The Greek Community of Melbourne (GCM) will embark on a ‘Storytelling’ project in which a series of events will be curated and staged celebrating the art and discipline of storytelling whilst celebrating Greek and Greek Australian artists, writers, and storytellers.

The project will take many forms and look to celebrate acclaimed works and emerging artists as part of the GCM’s Cultural Programs with the support of the Greek Quarter offering a diverse catalogue of content that will spark the interest of different generations.

The events will explore identity, creativity, internal values and integrity in celebration of how diverse and vast the art of storytelling can be.

The project kicks off with Ακούω, Παίζω… Δημιουργώ, on 22, 27 and 29 September which is aimed at children and will see the GCM’s School Teachers facilitating the engagement of young storytellers. At this event, the children will participate in activities centered around storytelling and will work on creating and presenting their own stories with the help of their friends and teachers.

On Friday 30 September the GCM presents the Live Radio Play read of Demetra Giannakopoulos’ Coming Out for Christmas at The Greek Centre. The show, which will feature a cast of 5 actors reading the accompanied by music and sound, is a dramedy about family, community, and living your truth.
