Want to hear a story?

The Library at the Dock is set to host a series of free storytelling shows running from July through to December.

Storytelling Australia Victoria (SAV) has commissioned nine storytellers to craft six compelling tales to reflect their affiliation with Docklands, entitled Words on the Wind.

The history and environment of Victoria Harbour will be explored, highlighting a corner of Melbourne that is immersed in tales of mystery and intrigue as well as major engineering works.

Project director, Anne Stewart said: “Words on the Wind is inspired by a visit to the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh where storytelling for adults is integral to the profile of the First City of Literature.”

Ms Stewart dreamed of somewhere comparable in Melbourne and the series was conceived.

“The Library at The Dock is a new meeting place and a chance for traditional storytelling to shine,” she said.

The series will be launched on July 24 with Jan “Yarn” Wositzky and his show The Go-Between: William Murrungurk Buckley.  

Buckley Walk at Docklands is named after this legendary escaped convict who lived as one of the Wathaurong for 32 years and served as an interpreter between indigenous people and colonists.
